United Nations Proclaims an International Year of Light in 2015
Date:12/23/2013

Bellingham, WA (PRWEB) December 22, 2013

The United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL2015).

Championed by scientific organizations around the world including SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, IYL2015 will promote improved public and political understanding of the central role of light in the modern world and celebrate significant scientific anniversaries occurring in 2015.

In proclaiming an International Year focusing on the topic of light science and its applications, the United Nations has recognized the importance of raising global awareness of how light-based technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture and health, organizers said.

“An International Year of Light is a tremendous opportunity to ensure that policymakers are made aware of the problem-solving potential of light technology,” said John Dudley, chairman of the IYL2015 steering committee. “Photonics provides cost-effective solutions to challenges in many different areas: energy, sustainable development, climate change, health, communications, and agriculture. For example, innovative lighting solutions reduce energy consumption and environmental impact, while minimizing light pollution so that we can all appreciate the beauty of the Universe in a dark sky.”

“Light gives us life through photosynthesis, lets us see back in time towards that cosmic big bang, and helps us communicate with the other sentient beings here on earth -- and should we find any, perhaps those in outer space as well,” noted Nobel Laureate John Mather, a NASA scientist and Fellow of SPIE. “Einstein studied light in developing the theory o
