Simulating Sunlight


I receive the magazine Photonics Spectra….sometime back I subscribed because it specializes in Optics and showcases some intriguing innovations.

The Coelux artificial light is one of those ideas: “Coelux is a great example of how science can turn a simple idea that is difficult to achieve – replicating sunlight into reality.”

Coelux is an artificial skylight embedded into a ceiling or wall….LEDs reproduce the sunlight spectrum….an optical system that is designed to recreate a sensation of distance between the sky and sun.

CoeLux was developed at the University of Insubria (Italy)….and consists of three different models representing different geographies.

Coelux would have been a great solution to living in Michigan during the winter!
