International Light Technologies (ILT) created the Light Measurement Tutorial to help R&D, QA and product development personnel gain an understanding of the key characteristics of UV, visible and IR light, and the important selection criteria when specifying a light measurement system, including how to choose a radiometer, a light detector, light filter and input optics. The ILT Light Measurement Tutorial is in HTML ("Web") format and is based on the ILT Light Measurement Handbook by Alex Ryer. Links to each of the 14 chapters as well as the front and back handbook covers, are listed below.
