[Extract] The UN General Assembly recognised the importance of light and its applications in our daily lives and proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies (IYL 2015). The International Year of Light celebrates light sciences to provide awareness on how light can promote sustainable development and provide solutions to current and future challenges. Light is a truly multidisciplinary area in science and finds applications in chemistry, physics, medicine, and energy (among others).

This special issue highlights achievements in research from across the globe in photochemistry, where light induces chemical reactions, and photophysics, where light interacts with matter to luminesce and/or convert to energy, for the sustainable production of medicines and the advancement of modern technology.
