Solid Science

Midwest Lighting Institute analyzes hundreds of papers and published studies. Our experts analyze the science behind the study and the validity of the assumptions. We then use these studies to help guide us to what research would be valuable to contribute to speed the adoption and understanding of new lighting technologies for the improvement of human health, safety, and productivity. Here are a few studies which we believe are core to our current research.
