ABOUT THE SESSION

Do you know what influences your sleep/wake cycle? Maintaining a healthy circadian rhythm is complicated. We will explore how the system works, how specific wavelengths of light stimulate it, and how to measure and apply circadian lighting. Case studies will be presented that experimented with stimulating the circadian rhythm by spectrally targeting the circadian response curve using DMX control systems with 4-, 6- and 7-channel LED luminaires. Lastly, lighting alone is not the answer to circadian entrainment, and we’ll discuss what can be done outside the office/school/workplace to maintain a healthy sleep/wake cycle.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • What is circadian rhythm, how is it stimulated, and what is the role of our ipRGCs?
  • What metrics are used to quantify light’s ability to stimulate the circadian rhythm, and how do we calculate them?
  • Designing to a stimulus level using DMX controlled luminaires, the complications found, and which control system worked best for our application.
  • Outside of lighting design, what else can humans do to maintain a healthy circadian cycle?
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Riley Rose
Lighting Engineer
Clanton and Associates

Riley's work at Clanton & Associates has included research on the human circadian system, how to stimulate that system using electric lighting, and how to maintain a healthy circadian rhythm. Riley works on projects solely focused on circadian stimulus and works to achieve stimulus values by spectrally tuning multi-channel luminaires.
