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.
