Applied Radiometry

Department 4.5


Realization, maintenance and dissemination of photometric and radiometric units within the spectral range from 193 nm up to 10.6 µm.

Measurement of directed reflection and transmission (spectral reflectance and transmittance) as well as classification numbers of diffuse spectral reflection in different geometries with wavelengths from the ultraviolet to the infrared.

Focal points are calibration services as well as research and development in the fields of
