Dichroic Halogen Mr16 Light Bulbs – Full spectrum light is light that covers all wavelengths from infrared to near-ultraviolet. Regardless of the variations in spectral distributions of sunrays reaching different parts of the planet. However, when used in relation to electric lights, it’s more of a marketing term so that products not known as complete spectrum might not differ substantially from those known as such.
These lights have been used a lot in art. They’re used by artists who work in studios during the night or in places where there’s no access to north sunlight.
Use of these special lights helps the artist make certain the colors look as they will when the works are displayed in a home or a art gallery. They’re also used by scientists or for color-matching in paint shops where north sunlight is unavailable.
In medicine, full-spectrum lamps are used in treating SAD,(Seasonal Affective Disorder), using “light boxes” which mimic sun during winter. Doctors have proven that this light is a pure stimulation for regulating circadian cycles.
Attempts have been made to independently verify the effectiveness of utilizing full spectrum light in various places. Utility providers, government agencies, and specialists have assembled under the umbrella of the National Lighting Product Information Program (NLPIP), to conduct this research. Their research findings do not find full spectrum lighting to maintain some benefits over other light systems
