Horticultural Lighting

The advent of solid state lighting has resulted in new opportunities for optimizing and regulating plant growth and biochemistry.  Light is a requirement for photosynthesis and it also provides information that plants sense and use to modulate their metabolism and development to maintain photostasis in changing environments.  The optimization of light use by plants and the use of remote sensing of plant signals to automate the spatial, spectral and temporal characteristics of the light environment is a major application of smart lighting.  The Center is exploring new applications of advanced lighting enabled systems and services in horticultural markets and applications.
