In recent times, full-spectrum lighting has attracted a lot of attention from the media regarding the negative effects that artificial lighting has on the health of humans as well as the eyes.
Full-spectrum lighting companies offer the benefits of natural light in all forms. But what exactly is full-spectrum light?
It's light that spans the electromagnetic spectrum, from infrared through near-ultraviolet, or any wavelengths important to animals or plant life. You can find the best natural daylighting simulation services via www.syp-urban.com/servicios/iluminacion-natural.

Sunlight is considered to be a full spectrum even though the spectrum of solar radiation that reaches Earth differs based on weather conditions, latitude, and the time of day.
"The term "full-spectrum" was coined by a photobiologist Dr. John Nash Ott, who proposed electronic light sources (in the early 1960s) which mimic both the visible as well as ultraviolet (UV) range of light that is natural.
There are a variety of companies that offer electric lighting products, which are advertised as full-spectrum. Some of these companies offer full spectrum lamps which claim to closely mimic daylight and thus offer advantages such as better vision and health, as well as healing and increased productivity.
Some of the advantages that can be derived from this particular lighting are greater visibility for close-up and detailed work and distinction of the colors. This can be beneficial in industries such as designing as well as sewing, jewelry work and other forms of artistic painting.
