Horticultural Lighting - The Root to International Standards

Horticultural Lighting - The Root to International Standards

Plants have evolved to make the most of the conditions in which they naturally grow. For some plants, this environment will be fully supportive; it may be less so for others. In general, the plant with the fully supportive conditions will predominate in the absence of external intervention. Humans have changed plants over the centuries, selectively growing the plants that provide maximum perceived benefits in terms of color, smell, yield and, perhaps more recently, nutritional value. For most of our evolution, we have had to make use of the environmental conditions available. The desire for cheap food, all year around, and attempts to minimize "food miles" has increased the move towards providing totally constructed growing environments.

Flex LED Based Smart Light System for Healing of Chronic Wounds

Flex LED Based Smart Light System for Healing of Chronic Wounds

LpR 71 Article - page 48: Chronic wounds are notoriously challenging to treat, because they do not follow the typical healing process or time-frame. The resulting burden is significant, affecting over 40 million patients. Blue light is known for its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory effects in the initial stages of the healing process. David Kallweit, researcher at CSEM, reports about the joint development of a chronic wound treatment device with their MEDILIGHT partners, URGO RID, University of Heidelberg, SignalGenerix, Microsemi, Technical University of Berlin, and Amires. He furthermore shows how it works and discusses future prospects.
