The power of light to improve the quality of life

International Year of Light Blog

The power of light to improve the quality of life of people around the world — to heal them — is a key focus of the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies 2015 (IYL 2015).

“Light plays a vital role in our daily lives and is an imperative cross-cutting discipline of science in the 21st century,” according to the mission statement of IYL 2015. “It has revolutionized medicine, opened up international communication via the Internet, and continues to be central to linking cultural, economic and political aspects of the global society.”
