Characterization of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) by UV-Visible Spectrophotometry
Author: C. Mark Talbott, Ph.D., Robert H. Clifford, Ph.D.
Wednesday, October 10, 2012

The acceptance and commercial utilization of Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) and, more recently, Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) have grown significantly in the past five years, leading to increased research. This paper demonstrates the use of a typical laboratory UV-Vis spectrophotometer to measure and characterize CFL and LED lamps, focusing on spectral characteristics such as peak wavelength, Full Width at Half Maximum, centroid wavelength, dominant wavelength, color, and color purity.

Ultra-Narrowband Optical Bandpass Filters with Large Format and Improved Temperature Stability
Hard coated ultra-narrowband optical filters made using modern plasma processes offer much improved transmission, temperature stability and out of band blocking as compared to legacy soft coatings. These filters are used in optical systems as diverse as LIDAR (light detection and ranging), Doppler shift detection of plasma velocity, laser cleanup, chemical and gas sensing, as well as for cutting-edge astronomy and instrumentation applications.

Measuring Optical Densities Over 10 Abs on the Agilent Cary 7000 Universal Measurement Spectrophotometer (UMS)
High blocking optical filters deliver critical optical control in a wide variety of consumer and industrial products. Highly attenuating (i.e., high optical density) filters are used in personal protective equipment, such as laser safety eyewear, through to precise, low light level control in optical systems for enhanced sensitivity at preferred wavelengths. This technical overview demonstrates the performance of the Cary 7000 UMS for the measurement of such materials.
