Research Summary

Alp Durmus is the head of the Lighting Laboratory of the Architectural Engineering Department of the Pennsylvania State University and is focused on research and education on illumination systems, solid-state lighting, and the interaction between humans and the built environments with respect to a wide range of applications on energy consumption, user interaction, and environmental impacts. The lab facilitates cross-disciplinary research to address socioeconomic, sociotechnical, and sociocognitive aspects of illumination design. The Lighting Laboratory conducts research both in fundamental and applied scientific disciplines. Fundamental research enabled by the lab is aimed to improve the understanding of the human response to visual stimuli, while the applied research will explore novel ways of utilizing this basic knowledge to design, operate, optimize, an! d maintain lighting systems. Ongoing research topics include spectral optimization for color rendition, energy efficiency, and circadian rhythm, light projection to reduce damage to artwork, and visual comfort metric evaluation.
