Indoor products may be subjected to a wide range of interior lighting environments. These environments include residential incandescent, commercial fluorescent, and industrial metal halide illuminants. Products may also be exposed to sunlight coming through a window or an automobile windshield. Each of these light sources has its own unique spectrum. In a like manner, each material has its own unique spectral sensitivity. This paper surveys a wide variety of the most commonly used indoor light sources, including direct and indirect window-filtered sunlight. The results indicate that direct window-filtered sunlight is the most severe interior lighting condition that your product will probably see. Because a xenon arc test chamber can provide an excellent simulation of sunlight through window glass, it is the best method of simulating this worst-case indoor lighting environment for testing the light stability of your product.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
