Behind the Scenes: Lighting Research in the Spotlight

Johnson
 
Rubinstein
"The future looks bright," Architectural Lighting magazine concludes in a special feature story on lighting research. The story focuses on two leading science centers for the field: Berkeley Lab's Lighting Research Group in Environmental Energy Technologies, and Rensselaer's (NY) Lighting Research Center. "Despite persistent funding concerns," they write, the two centers "continue to discover new and improved practices for the lighting industry." Among those speaking about Lab initiatives are Steve Johnson, Eleanor Lee, and Francis Rubinstein. Full story.
