Rich document WHITE PAPER - Measuring Color Uniformity
The color uniformity of light generated by LED luminaires plays a major role in many lighting applications. This makes it an important parameter to measure in both the R&D stage and during the quality assurance process. MKS Instruments has stayed abreast of this challenge by developing a new feature for its FluxGage photometrical system: the color uniformity measurement function. It allows quick evaluation of optical assemblies for color mixing and beam shaping. This whitepaper presents this novel feature of the system.

Rich document High Precision Wavelength and Power Measurement; Sub-Nanometer Resolution and Accuracy
Gamma Scientific announces the release of the Wavemon™ wavelength and power meter. The unit delivers accurate, real-time wavelength data combined with power measurement at a fraction of the cost of traditional spectrometers. Using proprietary optical filtering techniques and onboard calibration data, the Wavemon is able to resolve wavelength with accuracies to +/- 0.25 nm and +/- 0.01 nm repeatability and irradiance absolute accuracy of +/- 1%.
Rich document D source code ULTRIS Q20 - The New Hyperspectral Video Camera with Ecellent Data Quality, Flexibility and Speed
Cubert's new ULTRIS camera was developed based on the light field technology. The camera features an Ultra-HD CMOS sensor with 20 MP, which makes ULTRIS the imaging spectrometer with the world-wide highest resolution. During image acquisition the object is recorded with a multitude of images, each with its own optical bandpass filter with different center wavelength.
Rich document CIE Position Statement on Non-Visual Effects of Light - 2nd Edition
On October 3rd, CIE released their new position statement on non-visual effects of light, entitled "Recommending Proper Light at the Proper Time" 2nd edition. As non-visual effects are becoming more attention nowadays, confusion and uncertainties on this topic are still high in the lighting community. Much research has been done but even more research is necessary. CIE has recognized this relevant topic and already initiated an independent workshop of leading scientists in the field of quantifying light for non-visual effects in Manchester in 2013 (CIE TN 003:2015 (CIE 2015)). The CIE issued an international standard, CIE S 026:2018 (2018), that defines a system for metrology of optical radiation for light-induced responses that can be elicited by ipRGCs (ipRGC-influenced light (IIL) responses).
