1 LU Elective


The evolution of LED technology and human health & wellness is coalescing into a shift from monochromatic light to tunable white. Using green correction in a tunable white system can replicate the Correlated Color Temperature (CCT), Spectral Power Distribution (SPD) and Color Rendering Index (CRI) of ideal sunlight over the course of a day to help keep the human body synchronized to the time of day when not being adequately exposed to actual sunlight.

Learning Objectives
1. Understand how our mind and bodies rely on sunlight throughout a day.
2. Learn why CCT is compromised with traditional linear tunable white LED systems.
3. Find out how green light can fix tunable white CCT error.
4. See how green correction improves scotopic efficacy and CRI of a tunable white system.
