I would have loved to see this exhibit (at the Howard Wise Gallery in New York, 1967). Sounds like it was a pretty sweet combination of art and science.
From the catalog:

High intensity quartz-iodide lights; electronic circuitry; laser beams; magnetic distortion of electron beams; polarized light; plastics irradiated by gamma rays; polyester films coated with a mono-molecular layer of aluminum; new phosphors having varying controlled rates of decay; these are among the tools made available by the New Technology that 36 artist-scientists have used to achieve the works included in the LIGHTS IN ORBIT exhibition …

Lights in orbit, 1967 Feb. 4 - Mar. 4. Howard Wise Gallery records, Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution.
