Light directionality, spectrum and relevant radiometric or photometric quantity are believed to be essential factors influencing the magnitude of non-image-forming effects. In this paper, a measurement method and an instrument (the multidirectional spectroradiometer - MuS) is proposed, which considers different light incidents and spectra simultaneously, therefore enabling the measurement of light characteristics relevant for non-image-forming effects. The MuS consists of four… Expand

It is suggested that when analysing or designing an office environment, office workers’ positions and viewing direction should be included in the determination of personal lighting conditions. Expand
Non-visual effects of indoor light environment on humans: A review✰
A systematic review of how the quantity of light, spectral changes, time of day, and duration have effects on the circadian rhythm, alertness, and mood based on eligible literature finds high illuminance was positively correlated with subjective alertness during daytime, and increased the positive mood in the morning and decreased it in the afternoon.
