The PHENIX experiment at RHIC has measured a variety of light neutral mesons (π 0, K S 0 , η, ω, η ′, φ) via multi-particle decay channels over a wide range of transverse momentum. A review of the recent results on the production rates of light mesons in p + p and their nuclear modification factors in d + Au, Cu + Cu and Au + Au collisions at different energies is presented.
