Irradiance Measurement with Avantes Solar Simulator

Posted on: July 26th, 2021

Background/Applications: Spectral irradiance is the irradiance of a surface per unit frequency or wavelength, depending on whether the spectrum is taken as a function of frequency or of wavelength. The two forms have different dimensions: spectral irradiance of a frequency spectrum is measured in watts per square meter per hertz (W·m−2·Hz−1), while spectral irradiance of…

UV Radiometry Spectra

Posted on: April 21st, 2021

Radiometry deals with the measurement of all optical radiation inclusive of the visible portion of this radiant energy. Irradiance is a parameter of radiometry that describes the amount of radiant power upon a surface per unit area. These measurements can be done in the UV, VIS and NIR wavelength ranges. Irradiance measurements are useful in…
