  • Using Electromagnetic induction to characterize soils - Case Study

    Electrical conductivity measurements have been used for years to determine salinity and moisture in soils. Probes were inserted directly into the soil to determine how well the soil conducted an applied current. This process was slow and labor-intensive and was usually reserved for scientific studies. A more recent technique for measuring conductivity is electromagnetic induction (EM), a ...

  • Turn the lights - on?

    How many times have we heard that what people at work need to do is : 'Turn the lights off'.  Whenever I run courses for managers on Environmental Management Systems (EMSs), 90% say what they want to communicate with their workforce is to 'Get them to save energy - turn the lights off'. Yet what we should be doing is getting people to turn the lights on in their minds - there is much greater ...


  • Lethal light

    From radio signals to gamma waves, the electromagnetic spectrum offers considerable potential to prepare and preserve food products. Knowing precisely which wavelength in the spectrum to apply to a particular need is only the first step, however: scientists and engineers also need to fabricate systems that can withstand the rigors of an industrial environment. The application of UVC, short-wave ...


  • LED Lighting Systems for Particle Accelerators

    Accelerator facilities are filled with long, underground tunnels that houses large machine components, beam pipes, powerful magnets and walkways. Such locations must comply with IEC 60598-2-22 on Standard for Luminaires for Emergency Lighting. The regulation requires emergency fixtures not exceeding 1,000 volts to function in emergency mode for half of its rated duration (minimum) in ambient ...

  • Measuring IR Light and Near-IR Light

    Infrared (IR) light emits a broad range of non-visible wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. Applications for infrared, including near-infrared, are defined by the respective IR bands during output. For example, LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) equipment uses 1,000 nm and 1,550 nm IR bands while surveying an area. In the military sector, 850 nm, 1,060 nm and 1,500 nm (and up) are used ...

  • Light Plants and Scene Lighting for Natural Disasters

    According to the Red Cross, the recent onslaught of persistent flooding in Louisiana has surpassed the devastating floods that came with Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Without warning, the state received a whopping 6.9 trillion gallons of rainfall in one week (based on a report from CNN). Over 40,000 homes were affected by the flood, resulting $30 million in damages. Scientists speculate that ...

  • A new light on saving energy

    Some 80,000 dynamic street lights have been installed in Europe over the past few years. Quite a modest number if you consider that there are some 91 million light points in Europe. The city of Oslo alone has 54,000 street lights. A dynamic street light is a system that tells you exactly how much energy each single luminary is using and when its lamp needs to be replaced. It adapts the light ...

  • Savings and Incentives for Lighting Upgrades

    One of the biggest obstacles to performing upgrades of existing lighting systems is the oftentimes high initial cost. Although new energy standards that affect the availability of older lighting types still in use will force the decision for many, those who act before a particular lamp type becomes unavailable stand to gain the most benefit. ...

  • Goodbye Light Bulb Jokes?

    Once upon a time, joking about ‘how many it takes to screw in a light bulb’ was a great way to poke fun at people’s intelligence. After all, what could be easier than screwing in a light bulb? Any idiot could do it. Not so any more. Lighting has exploded into a sophisticated business. And for those who manage commercial buildings it can be downright intimidating. Figuring out ...

  • How to clean solar lights

    Summer's over and now is the ideal time for a hefty portion of us here in the United States to consider fall cleanup. In the event that you have solar powered lighting, or any scene lights besides, it’s not difficult to harm or even demolish lights once rakes and leaf blowers turn out. Fortunately, there are some simple and fast ...

  • Better sight with natural light

    Since the invention of the light bulb in the late 1800s, the use of artificial light has swept the globe as a ‘must have’ in every home and office, largely due to the option for increased productivity. However, the result of having these luxuries so readily available has dimmed our desire to use natural light to the point where it has been largely neglected in the design of many of ...
