This document includes a definition of the concept of modulation frequencies for lightemitting diodes (LEDs), a discussion on their applications to LED lighting, a description of LED lighting applications in which modulation frequencies pose possible health risks to users, a discussion of the dimming of LEDs by modulating the frequency of driving currents/voltage, and recommendations for modulation frequencies (flicker) for LED lighting and dimming applications to help protect against known… 
Designing to Mitigate Effects of Flicker in LED Lighting: Reducing risks to health and safety
How often has this scenario happened? You are driving at night behind a car that has bright light-emitting diode (LED) taillights. When looking directly at the taillights, the light is not blurry,
Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDS): Implications for Safety
  • Physics
    Health physics
  • 2020
TLDR
It has now been established that published safety standards for lamps, not lasers, should be applied when evaluating the optical radiation safety of LEDs, because the only clear, acute adverse health effects from LEDs are those due to temporal light modulation (including flicker).

Since the original ICNIRP Statement was published in 2000, there have been significant improvements in the efficiency and radiance (i.e., optical radiation emission) of LEDs. The most important
Estimation of Flicker of Contemporary LED Lamps and Luminaires
TLDR
Although retrofit LED lamps are now wide spread, the experimental results described in the paper show that some of them are still sources of flicker and care should be taken when they are used for specific applications.
Can the Adverse Health Effects of Flicker from LEDs and Other Artificial Lighting Be Prevented?
Abstract There are known problems with the various means by which flicker is quantified. None of the established metrics reliably provides the extent of the health effects of being exposed to
Correspondence: On the state of knowledge concerning the effects of temporal light modulation
Temporal light modulation (TLM) is a change in the luminous quantity or spectral distribution of light with respect to time of either a light source or a lighting system. These changes arise because

This paper proposes a flicker free 100-W class light-emitting diode (LED) driver with an active buffer circuit. The conventional LED drivers have been used electrolytic capacitor for reducing flicker
Wavelength dependency of the critical flicker-fusion frequency: therapeutic 40 Hz light source in Alzheimer’s disease
The use of controlled temporal modulated light increased in prominence since the LEDs invention, e.g., in computer monitors and light therapy devices. The benefits of using LEDs compared to old
Investigation of LED Lighting Performance in the Presence of Ripple Injection Load Control Signals
This paper presents the outcomes of laboratory testing on a sample of LED lamp/driver and dimmer combinations in presence of Audio Frequency Injection Control (AFIC) signals used by network operators
A Low Flicker TRIAC Dimmable Direct AC LED Driver for Always-on LED Arrays
TLDR
This paper achieves both TRIAC dimmer compatibility and low percent flicker by correlating a phase-cut ratio to luminance and using always-on multi-arrays, respectively, without the need of a dedicated IC.

Fluorescent lighting, headaches and eyestrain
TLDR
In a double-blind cross-over design, the average incidence of headaches and eyestrain was more than halved under high-frequency lighting and headaches tended to decrease with the height of the office above the ground and thus with increasing natural light.
The impact of flicker from fluorescent lighting on well-being, performance and physiological arousal.
TLDR
Individuals with high critical flicker fusion frequency (CFF) responded with a pronounced attenuation of EEG alpha waves, and an increase in speed and decrease in accuracy of performance when the light was powered by conventional and high-frequency ballasts.

For a number of years the standard of electric lighting has been set by the carbon-filament lamp consuming initially 3.1-watts per candle-power. Progress there has been; but it has been chiefly in
Intermittent Illumination from Visual Display Units and Fluorescent Lighting Affects Movements of the Eyes Across Text
TLDR
The size of eye movements across text was measured under conditions in which the text was illuminated by fluorescent light or was displayed on the screen of a cathode-ray tube and the high-velocity saccadic eye movements were enlarged.
Human electroretinogram responses to video displays, fluorescent lighting, and other high frequency sources.
Time-averaged human electroretinogram (ERG) responses were determined for several workplace visual stimuli which are temporally modulated at rates exceeding the perceptual critical fusion frequency
Voltage and lamp flicker issues: should the IEEE adopt the IEC approach?
This paper is intended to provide an overview of the IEC flicker measurement and assessment procedures. The IEC procedures are correlated with existing IEEE flicker standards to show the benefits of
Eye’s Response at Flicker Fusion to Square-Wave Modulation of a Test Field Surrounded by a Large Steady Field of Equal Mean Luminance
With two electrical analogs of the brightness system it is shown that at a low luminance level (<5 photons) and in the low-frequency region (<2 cps), when under the special visual conditions no

In this paper it is shown that the well-known residual brightness flicker just above the color-flicker limit with heterochrome flicker photometery can be brought down to zero by introducing an
The influence of flicker rate on plasma corticosterone levels of European starlings, Sturnus vulgaris.
TLDR
The authors aimed to determine whether a passerine, the European starling, found flicker aversive by measuring the corticosterone stress response in birds maintained under high- or low- frequencies fluorescent lighting for 1 or 24 h, and suggest that low-frequency lighting is potentially more stressful.
