New Stray Light Correction Method Enables UV Hazard Measurements with Array Spectroradiometer

A new stray light correction method implemented in the BTS2048 UV array spectroradiometer now enables applications previously only possible with double monochromator systems. This novel method was presented at the CIE's 29th quadrennial session. It combines Out-of-Range and In-Band stray light correction techniques, thereby greatly increasing the dynamic range of accurate UV measurements.

This performance is particularly beneficial for the assessment of UV hazards in accordance with the measurements required by IEC / DIN EN 62471, EU Directive 2006/25/EC and ICNIRP guidelines. The compact BTS2048-UV-S is convenient for in-situ measurements as well as laboratory based setups. This hybrid stray light correction method has been incorporated into the latest S-BTS2048 software.
