Photometry and radiometrySP's Optical Metrology Laboratory is Sweden's national standards laboratory for photometry and radiometry. We perform calibrations, measurements and evaluations in the optical wavelength range, i.e. ultraviolet, visible light and infra-red.
Optical metrology refers to the measurement of optical radiation and its properties. Starting from SP's cryogenic radiometer, which is the primary standard for radiometric power, we perform traceable calibrations and measurements of detectors and light sources.
Calibrations, measurements and safety classifications
We calibrate fibre-optic instruments for companies in the telecoms and sensor sectors, and perform measurements of light and colour, which are very important for industrial technology, the lighting environment and the work environment. In addition, we also perform safety classifications of lasers and accredited measurements of hospital analysis laboratories, as well as disseminating our expertise through custom courses for companies and organisations.
Research and innovations
Our work in photometry and radiometry is continuously developed through constant research and innovation, much of which is carried out in the form of externally commissioned projects from research funding sources, and as commissioned work for specific customers.
