Understand the facts about UV-C LEDs and germicidal applications – Center Director Robert Karlicek and Leah Scott set the record straight on how packaged LEDs fit into the germicidal UV application space. (more…)
Electrical engineers have found a way to use bacteria [that can breathe anaerobically, or without oxygen] to manufacture an up-and-coming two-dimensional material called molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), which can form a sheet just a few atoms thick and holds promise for future electronics. These metal-breathing bacteria could transform electronics, biosensors, and more.
Center Director Robert Karlicek comments on the ‘unique systems for using UVC light to sterilize masks in bulk‘ in the October IEEE Spectrum issue: The Next Pandemic.

LESA Researchers Agung Julius and Mona Hella received $750K in funding to further develop a novel approach to estimate circadian phase shift through the use of dynamic lighting applications and biosensing wearables. (more…)
John Wen, Agung Julius, and LESA researchers at UNM were published in the prestigious Chronobiology International Journal for their work on ‘Actigraphy-based parameter tuning process for adaptive notch filter and circadian phase shift estimation’.
LESA’s Healthcare team has been busy! In case you missed it, check out what’s been happening around our Healthy Lighting research vertical.
Robert Karlicek joined experts Darcie Chinnis and David Pfund in recent IALD Webinar: Lighting Design and GUV Technology. Germicidal lighting has become an increasingly popular topic for its potential as an effective disinfectant application against germs, bacteria, and viruses such as COVID-19 in the built environment.
