A research team at the Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (EJUST) has succeeded in manufacturing advanced LED lights with very comfortable lighting for the eye, without the harmful effects of blue light, as its percentage was reduced by 50%. Two patents were registered in the Egyptian Patent Office for the product and the team cooperated with a British company to market the product developed by the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology.
Prof. Mohsen Ghali, a professor at the Energy Materials Department at the University’s Institute of Basic and Applied Sciences, said that the research project was funded by the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology with an amount of one million and seven hundred thousand pounds. He explained that the bulbs developed are environmentally friendly and their use does not result in any damage to the eye, indicating that they addressed the technical defects in some white LED lights currently on the market. These include their pathological effect on the eye, where the blue light rays affect the cells of the retina of the human eye and cause slow destruction of the photoreceptor cells and lead to weak eyesight and death of photocells in the retina. In addition, they lead to a defect in the biological clock and a distortion in the physiology of the eye.
He added that the developed LED lights can be used in many applications, including, for example, commercial applications (large store lights, sports stadiums, and places with continuous work as in national projects), medical applications (surgical operating rooms and dental clinics), museum lighting applications and art galleries, public exhibitions of closely related textiles and applications of industrial lighting, as in television screens.
