This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


Closed-loop Spectroscopy Lab: Light-mixing Demo (CLSLab:Light) is a teaching and prototyping platform for autonomous scientific discovery. It consists of a set of LEDs and a light sensor while encapsulating key principles for "self-driving" (i.e., autonomous) research laboratories, including sending commands, receiving sensor data, physics-based simulation, and advanced optimization. CLSLab:Light is a "Hello, World!" introduction to these topics, accessible by students, educators, hobbyists, and researchers for less than 100 USD, a small footprint, and under an hour of setup time.
