Photonics is the technology of generating and harnessing light, and other forms of radiant energy, particularly in the visible and near infrared light spectrum. Photonics applications include assessment of the emission, transmission, detection, amplification, and modulation of light energy radiance and surface irradiance. Photonics is deeply rooted in a broad range of science and technology applications, including laser manufacturing, biological and chemical sensing, medical diagnostics and therapy, display technology, and optical computing. Throughout this array of applications the importance of measuring the precise quality and intensity of light varies, but can be critical depending upon the application’s technical requirements.
ASD’s FieldSpec® instruments are rugged, reliable, and truly portable 350 – 2500 nm wavelength spectroradiometers. They provide accurate and repeatable, research-grade measurements for research and quality testing of instrumentation. FieldSpec spectroradiometers provide cost-effective solutions to meet most light measurement and evaluation requirements, including laser power, characterization of solar simulators, photopic and spectral lamp flux, and critical measurements of laser diodes and LED components such as optical power, color, and goniometric measurements.
