Congratulations to GLASE’s Erico Mattos

Congratulations to GLASE‘s Executive Director, Dr. Erico Mattos, for being named to LEDs Magazine’s inaugural “40 under 40” list.  GLASE is the public-private partnership between RPI’s LESA and Cornell University, funded by NYSERDA, and focused on greenhouse lighting and systems management.  GLASE is working to develop the next generation of greenhouse technology in LED systems engineering, plant photobiology, plant physiology, and greenhouse environmental controls.

Extreme Light Trapping

A silicon solar cell harvests the energy of the sun as light travels down through light-absorbent silicon. To reduce weight and cost, solar cells are thin, and while silicon absorbs visible light well, it captures less than half of the light in the near-infrared spectrum, which makes up one-third of the sun’s energy. Read more.

Circadian, Sleep and Neurobehavioral Performance Engineering @ LESA

Human circadian rhythm regulation is linked to many physiological processes, including sleep. Circadian disruption is known to have negative impacts on health and may lead to lower human performance and higher risk of failure during critical tasks.  By understanding the relationships between human circadian processes, sleep processes, and cognitive performance, improved management of lighting and task scheduling can be developed to favorably impact overall human health and performance.
