Research suggests that exposure to full-spectrum light may be effective in helping maintain natural circadian rhythms, the cycle of sleeping and waking.
What is Full spectrum light?
The term "Full Spectrum" implies that a lamp is designed to produce energy across the full visible spectrum like natural light. This term is often used to describe metal halide arc tube lamps.
Full spectrum light Full spectrum light is light that covers the electromagnetic spectrum from infrared to near-ultraviolet, or all wavelengths that are useful to plant or animal life; in particular, sunlight is considered full spectrum, even though the solar spectral distribution reaching Earth changes with time of day, latitude, and atmospheric conditions.
Uses of full spectrum light
1. Full spectrum fluorescent lamps are used in the art studio to make sure that the colors they are using appear in their natural hue as they will appear when the painting is displayed in a home or in an art gallery. Full-spectrum lamps are also used by color scientists or color matchers in paint stores to match colors at night or inside when they don't have access to north sunlight.
2. Full spectrum lighting is used both for tropical and marine fish as well as many other water pets. The use of full spectrum lighting assists aquarium plants to grow and aids in the health of the fish and the tank as a whole.
3. Gardening under lights keeps plants blooming almost year-round, for a wintertime harvest. Some plants grow better when given more of a certain color light, due to the mechanism of photosynthesis.
4. Full spectrum lighting has been used in the treatment of seasonal affective disorder (SAD) through the use of "light boxes" that mimic natural sunlight, which may not be available in some areas during the winter months.
