This book outlines the underlying principles on which interior lighting should be based, provides detailed information on the lighting hardware available today and gives guidance for the design of interior lighting installations resulting in good visual performance and comfort, alertness and health. The book is divided into three parts. Part One discusses the fundamentals of the visual and non-visual mechanisms and the practical consequences for visual performance and comfort, for sleep, daytime alertness and performance, and includes chapters on age effects, therapeutic effects and hazardous effects of lighting. Part Two deals with the lighting hardware: lamps (with emphasis on LEDs), gear, drivers and luminaires including chapters about lighting controls and LEDs beyond lighting. Part Three is the application part, providing the link between theory and practice and supplying the reader with the knowledge needed for lighting design. It describes the relevant lighting criteria for good and efficient interior lighting and discusses the International, European and North American standards and recommendations for interior lighting. A particular focus is on solid state light sources (LEDs) and the possibility to design innovative, truly-sustainable lighting installations that are adaptable to changing circumstances. The design of such installations is difficult and the book offers details of the typical characteristics of the many different solid state light sources, and of the aspects determining the final quality of interior lighting. Essential reading for interior lighting designers, lighting engineers and architects, the book will also be a useful reference for researchers and students.

Because: You want to fall asleep faster and stay asleep every night.You want to cure insomnia that is disrupting your sleep cycle.You want to stop feeling tired all the time from sleep deprivation. You want to not use sleep medications but opt for natural methods. You want to improve your focus and productivity throughout the day. The average adult needs around seven to nine hours of sleep each night, according to the National Sleep Foundation. Sadly, many get far less than that bare minimum, and it’s affecting their lives negatively and decreasing their ability to function properly. The truth is, roughly 70 million people in the United States alone are already suffering from some kinds of sleep disorders, and that number is only going to rise to a staggering 100 million by the middle of the 21st century. In the conventional sense, there are medications to diagnose sleep disorders, but it goes without saying there are potentials for side effects, dependence, harm, and even death from accidental overdose. That’s why you should address the issue at the core rather than put a band-aid over the symptom with some pills that carry unknown long-term consequences. There is an underlying source attributing to your sleep problems - and that is exactly what the 7-Day Sleep Challenge will tackle head-on in only a week. You’ll get practical applications and strategies that are both hands-on and effective, including:Sleep-aid hacks using scents, sounds, lighting, air, and temperature A custom detailed plan to follow to ritualistically get ready for bed Behavior modifications for establishing new sleeping patterns All of these things and many more are simple to do and will dramatically improve the quality of your 1.
