Radiometric calibrated light sources are carefully measured and characterized to deliver a known quantity of light with a very low uncertainty. Whether it is for the highest level of traceability when working with regulatory agencies in food or pharmaceuticals or for new instrument design where accurate comparison as a necessity, radiometric calibrated standards deliver the data you trust.
Using well-know and traceable standard materials, the light source you purchase is measured to these reference points. This creates an unbroken chain of traceability providing you with the highest quality and most reliable data.
Since each component of a calibrated system carries a small amount of error or uncertainty, your particular light source has to be carefully and individually characterized. Your system is analyzed statistically and compared to well-known references and the resulting calibration data for your radiometric source is defined on a certificate that explains each contribution to uncertainty and how that influences each calibration data point.
Our commitment doesn’t stop with a certificate and data. Our team of application engineers will take the time to explain the subtle nuances of radiometric calibration and help you understand why this level of detail is so important for some measurements.
Our radiometric calibrated sources cover the UV to the near-IR. Let us help you find the right source for your traceable measurement needs. Radiometric calibration services are also available.
