Madrid / June 21, 2023

Our colleague Joaquín Campos is going to offer an online conference entitled “New calibration standards to replace incandescent lamps” within the cycle of instrumentation seminars offered by the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands

Conference Summary

The traceability to the international system of SI units of the spectroradiometric measurements of optical radiation in a multitude of applications (control of essential climatic variables, industrial processes, lighting, health care, occupational safety, photovoltaic power generation, etc.) has been carried out using transfer patterns based on incandescent lamps. However, the availability of these lamps is decreasing due to the progressive abandonment of the production of lamps of this type for lighting.

The objective of this seminar is to discuss other radiation sources (current or future) that can adequately and affordably replace incandescent lamps and alternative procedures to radiation sources for the transfer/calibration of spectral irradiance measurements in the ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared ranges.
