Optical Analysis

Changes, such as colour change, that take place during exposure are optically measured. In addition to colour, most typical optical values measured are transmittance, reflectance, absorbance and haze. We also measure gloss, yellowness index and colour aberrations.

The colour change during testing is estimated from the colour change (DE) calculated from the measured L* a* b* colour coordinates. Colour change is defined in such a way that a change of one unit in magnitude corresponds to a change that can just about be perceived by the eye. A change in gloss is estimated with the help of the residual gloss, which corresponds to a percantage change in the gloss

We provide measurements such as light distribution and light flux measurements related to lamps and luminaires. We are also lisenced to measure the optical properties, irradiance, of lamps designed of explosive atmospheres.

Our optics measurement service helps in all things related to optical measurements.
