Instrument Systems Publishes Technical Handbook on LED and SSL Metrology

With its "Handbook of LED and SSL Metrology", Instrument Systems is publishing a comprehensive technical manual on the optical measurement of LED and SSL products. The work is suitable for beginners as well as experienced specialists. Not only does it cover the basics of LED and SSL metrology, it also provides detailed insights into the requirements of all current applications in the growing LED market.

In the book's nine chapters, authors Dr. Günther Leschhorn (Head of Product Management at Instrument Systems) and Dr. Richard Young (former Chief Scientist and currently external consultant for Instrument Systems), describe everything necessary to understand light metrology. In particular, this includes basic terms, definitions and standards, the properties of LEDs and SSL products, an overview of suitable measuring instruments and accessories as well as in-depth application knowledge on various fields of operation. Over 100 illustrations and tables visualize the subject matter.
