LI-210 Photometric Sensor
The LI-210 Photometric Sensor utilizes a filtered silicon photodiode to provide a spectral response that matches the CIE curve within ± 5% with most light sources. This photodiode and filter combination is placed within a fully cosine-corrected sensor head to provide the proper response to radiation at various angles of incidence.
Some of the applications for the LI-210 Photometric Sensor include interior and industrial lighting, outdoor illuminance, passive solar energy, architecture and lighting models, illumination engineering, and biological sciences that require illuminance measurements. The LI-210 is a research grade photometric sensor that is very reasonably priced.
Photometry refers to the measurement of visible radiation (light) with a sensor having a spectral responsivity curve equal to the average human eye. This curve is known as the CIE Standard Observer Curve (photopic curve). Photometric sensors are used to measure lighting conditions where the eye is the primary receiver, such as illumination of work areas, interior lighting, television screens, etc. Although photometric measurements have been used in the past in plant science, PPFD and irradiance are the preferred measurements.
Principles of Radiation Measurement
Much confusion has existed regarding the measurement of radiation. This report presents a comprehensive summary of the terminology and units used in radiometry, photometry, and the measurement of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR).Read More
