Understanding differential and absolute photometry can give you the tools you need to ensure that all your LED lights are functioning correctly.
Calibrating your light testing equipment is essential to accurate measurements. Read more about the maintenance process for these types of equipment here.
Learn about light transmission vs. transmittance, the key differences, and how they help calculate the various ways light travels through materials.
Continuing on with the next installment of Electromagnetic Spectrum 101, today we’re going to be discussing some of the basics of gamma rays.
In a medical environment, it goes without saying that you want your doctor to see well. But this isn’t the only advantage to proper lighting.
We’ve all spent some time outside and come back in to notice that our skin has become noticeably darker. We accept it as part of life, but how does it happen?
Understanding the behavior of rays of light as they pass through water can be instrumental in testing the capabilities of light equipment, marine or otherwise.
After a brief sabbatical, Electromagnetic Spectrum 101 is back in session. We continue our series of closer—but not too close—looks at the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation with the middle of the continuum:…
“Raging Martians Invaded Venus Using X-Ray Guns.” “Granddad Xavier Unfortunately Vomited In My Room.” Sounds like the premise of a science-fiction novel—along with something that could distract you while you’re…
A light-emitting diode is more than a mechanism that simply turns on and off. Beyond simply emitting one kind of white light, LEDs have the capacity to shine in thousands…
