Comparison of modelling and measurement results of spectra emitted by a programmable lamp

Mateusz Feldzensztajn, Adam Mazikowski


Nowadays artificial light with optimized spectrum is used in many different applications. For instance, it is widely used in museums and exhibitions to illuminate the art. Moreover, such light stimulates the growth of plants, or can be applied in industry and healthcare. To achieve the best results for each application, adjusting of dedicated spectrum is required, that is a complicated task. The ongoing research is focused on simplifying this process. In this paper we present the developed lamp with programmable spectrum, and its user interface. Predicted and measured output spectra are investigated.
