ALIS a multi-eyed voyeur in a plasma universe
The Northern Lights are a visible result of physical processes in inner space. By studying the optical signal from the Northern Lights and similar phenomena, we can gain new knowledge about the physics behind them. In the long run such pure research may be of great importance for applications in our future supply of energy and for future space travel. A dissertation at Ume'å University,...

Northern lights research enters final frontier
An international team of scientists — including physicists from the University of Calgary — will begin gathering the most detailed information yet about the ever-changing northern lights, as a multi-year research project enters its ultimate phase with the launch of five NASA satellites from Cape Canaveral next month. View News Article (2007-01-15)

Lights tuned to birds' eyes may help reduce bird-aircraft collisions
Collisions with birds are one of the most common hazards to aircraft, causing $700 million in damage annually in the U.S. A study published this week in The Condor: Ornithological Applications may have important implications for reducing bird strikes through the customization of aircraft and runway lights to birds' visual systems.  View News Article (2015-04-09)

Intelligent street lights adapt to conditions in Finland
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has developed a dimmable LED street light that consumes significantly less energy than current lighting systems, while improving the lighting characteristics. View News Article (2013-05-28)
