2015 International Year of Light
Turn on your cell phone and the screen lights up for you to see. Flip a switch and a classroom turns from dark to bright. Decorate your home with holiday candles and lights, or watch fireworks light up the midnight sky on New Year's Eve...Light and light-based technologies affect every day and nearly every part of our lives. Often we take light for granted, but in 2015 the world will be paying a lot more attention during the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies.
