Wout van Bommel

Wout van Bommel, Prof., M. Sc., has 50 years experience in lighting. He worked for more than 35 years with Philips Lighting. He has carried out research into many different lighting subjects. Some concepts now used in international standards for lighting are based on his research work. For the period 2003– 2007 he has been President of the International Lighting Commission, CIE. He is the honorary board member of the Dutch “Light & Health Research Foundation”, SOLG. In 2019, he was the first recipient of an award of the Dutch Lighting Society named after him: the” Wout van Bommel award”. Wout van Bommel was in 2004 appointed Consulting Professor at the Fudan University of Shanghai. He is the author of the 2015 “Road Lighting” and 2019 “Interior Lighting” books. All over the world he has presented papers, has taught at universities and schools and has given invited lectures at Conferences. After his retirement from Philips Lighting, he advices, as an independent Lighting Consultant, lighting designers, researchers, companies municipalities and governmental bodies

To avoid disappointments with LED lighting installations, detailed knowledge of the typical characteristics of the many different solid-state light sources is essential, while already long-available information on vision and colour seeing has to be combined with entirely new fundamental research on the relationship between lighting on the one hand and vision, performance, comfort, health and well-being on the other hand. Lighting has apart from visual effects also far-reaching non-visual biological effects. These effects influence the way our body “operates” and therefore, influence our health, well-being and alertness. Interior lighting installations today have to be designed so that they provide both suitable visual and non-visual biological effects, while adverse effects of lighting, like flicker, blue light hazard and disruption of the biological clock, are avoided.
LEDs offer the possibility to use them not only for lighting but also for data transmission. The use of LED lighting as a means for data communication is referred to as “light beyond illumination”. Visible Light Communication (VLC), LiFi, and light itself used as sensor are part of this subject. The modern lighting professional has to get familiarised with these new technologies and applications.
The author of this article published in 2019 the book “Interior Lighting, fundamentals, technology and application” with Springer [1]. It discusses in 500 pages all topics important for the up-to-date interior lighting professional. The present overview article is entirely based on this book and follows the same chapter structure. Each chapter also describes, as an example, one or two crucial aspects in more detail.
