Nano-Lit Technologies’ Quantum Dot Lighting Installed at IWBI Headquarters

LDS NanoLit 400

Feb 22, 2021

Designed and manufactured by Nano-Lit Technologies, Quantum Dot lighting has been installed at the International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) global headquarters in New York City, which has achieved the WELL Certification under the latest version of the WELL Building Standard™, WELL v2.

Vancouver based, Nano-Lit Technologies lighting system adjusts wavelengths and colour temperature throughout the day to support the alignment of the body’s circadian rhythm to the day-night cycle. SENSO Lighting fixtures with Nano-Lit light engines address features within the WELL Light concept of WELL v2. The effect of light on people is an emerging area of study and to date we know more about its effect on plants than people in buildings.

Thus, Nano-Lit is working with circadian rhythm researchers at five leading US and Canadian universities to study lighting as part of the treatment regimen for cancer, delirium, insomnia, depression and aging-related conditions.

Dr. Chris Mason, Chairman and Member of the Board of Directors, will for the Nano-Lit investigation leverage some of the research protocols Dr. Mason developed for the NASA Twin Study, where he was the Principal Investigator for the genetics and gene expression components of the research – including responses to circadian rhythm disruption.

Quantum Dots, which facilitate improved wavelength control as well as minimise blue light more than standard LED phosphors, have been used in Biotechnology for screening for decades and in the past five years have been used in the Samsung 
QLED displays.

“Lighting plays an important role in keeping us energized and maintaining our internal clocks,” said IWBI™ CEO and Chairman Rick Fedrizzi. “We’re excited to now experience a circadian lighting solution within our own global HQ.”
