Improving Light And Heat Spectra Measurements
PTB software for industry and research can be downloaded free of charge.
Whether you want to investigate objects in space, characterize the quality of light sources, optimize photovoltaics modules or analyze chemical compounds, measuring the spectrum of light- or heat sources is often the method of choice. Conventional procedures thereby generate radiation distribution curves which are distorted and have to be subsequently corrected. The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) has now developed a mathematical procedure which yields clearly improved results and can be applied in numerous fields of radiometry and photometry. The software required can be downloaded free of charge from PTB's website.
To make the method developed at PTB easily applicable, adapted software with a graphical user interface is now available. Interested companies and manufacturers of measuring instruments can download it free of charge from PTB's website: http://www.ptb.de/cms/en/fachabteilungen/abt8/fb-84/ag-842/dynamischemessungen-842.html.
