This book has focused on the latest technological advances of LEDs and micro-LEDs in different fields of knowledge such as the food and pharmaceutical industries. However, it is worth highlighting the great development they have had in agriculture, both in pre- and post-harvest, and even in livestock and aquaculture.

Looking towards the future, the potential applications of LED lighting technologies continue to evolve and expand. The knowledge and experiences shared in this book not only reflect the current state of the art, but also lay the groundwork for future innovations. As LED technology continues to advance, we anticipate that its influence will extend far beyond our current knowledge, offering novel solutions and possibilities in a multitude of industries and disciplines. In the pages that follow, we invite you to explore not only our past achievements, but also the promising prospects that lie ahead in the dynamic world of LED lighting.
