Bridgelux Develops a New Metric to Quantify the Naturalness of Light

Bridgelux Develops a New Metric to Quantify the Naturalness of Light Bridgelux today announced development of a new metric to enable objective comparisons of light sources to natural light. With the growing market interest in human-centric lighting, the question of “naturalness” of light source spectra is becoming a frequently asked question. Standard lighting quality metrics such as CRI and TM-30 do not fully address the naturalness question. The Average Spectral Difference (ASD) metric has been developed by Bridgelux to address this shortcoming in available light quality metrics. Read more »
