Both were able to successfully adopt a lighting solution using highly blue-enriched light sources to provide enough illumination and short-wavelength light throughout the day to reduce the misalignment of circadian rhythms (Najjar et al.
Transitions to LED lighting greatly increase this 'skyglow,' because the clear sky predominantly scatters short-wavelength light," the study explains.
These agents absorb light in the ultraviolet region of the spectrum and re-emit light in the blue region, thus increasing the intensity of short-wavelength light, which may be perceived by deer against an otherwise darker background.
1) In general, carotenoids protect organisms from damage by acting as antioxidants and filtering damaging short-wavelength light.
The real risk, they say, is that the damage becomes greater and greater with time, and is not repairable: "Bluish-white (high CCT) LEDs contain a major fraction of short-wavelength light that causes irreversible retinal neuronal cell death .
Some epidemiological studies have suggested that short-wavelength light exposure is a predisposing cause for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) (Wu et al.
Exposure to light at night, especially short-wavelength light, can slow or even cease nocturnal melatonin production.
The present results are the first to show that low levels of short-wavelength light enhance CAR in adolescents who were restricted from sleep," Figueiro said.
In nighttime conditions, the human eye is more sensitive to short-wavelength light, which produces 'cool' tones like blue or green, as opposed to long-wavelength light, which produces 'warm' tones like yellow and red," explains LRC director of energy programs Peter Morante.
The antioxidant capabilities of these xanthophylls combined with their ability to trap short-wavelength light may serve to protect the outer retina, retinal pigment epithelium, and choriocapillaris from oxidative damage.
Defining the smallest components requires short-wavelength light.
Reaching very small dimensions requires using very short-wavelength light.
