Optical Measurement Applications and Solutions

We offer solutions for many optical measurement applications in the UV/VIS/NIR radiometry and photometry. In the following sections you can find a selection of these applications. Feel free to contact us if you are interested or you need a solution for a more specific application.


LED Manufacturing and Assembling

The manufacture of LEDs and LED based products requires specialized measurement technology for the accurate measurement of light intensity, spectral power distribution, color and other quantities. Gigahertz Optik GmbH offers a comprehensive range of LED light measuring devices, accessories and calibrations. Some example uses of Gigahertz-Optik GmbH products within the field of LED manufacturing and processing follow.

General and special lighting

General and Special Lighting

Lighting covers a diversity of applications from general purpose illumination to special uses within the automotive and aviation industries as well as horticulture and many other niche areas. Gigahertz-Optik GmbH produces an extensive range of light measuring instruments for both LED and traditional lighting technologies. Some typical application examples using Gigahertz-Optik GmbH products follow.

Light hazard

Light hazard

Optical radiation, especially in the ultraviolet region, is potentially hazardous to skin and eyes. Gigahertz-Optik GmbH produces optical radiation measuring devices to determine the UV radiation (skin and eye), blue light (eye) and infrared (skin) hazards in accordance with international standards. Some typical application examples of Gigahertz-Optik GmbH products are listed in this chapter.

Solar radiation

Solar Radiation

The precise measurement of natural solar radiation is an important requirement for atmospheric research, the measurement of the total ozone column and the determination of UV index. Additionally, renewable energy research and the use of artificial sources such as solar simulators require accurate optical radiation measurement data. Gigahertz-Optik GmbH has been an active partner of the solar community since 1986 as both a manufacturer of measuring instruments and a service provider.

UV radiation

UV Radiation

UV radiation is widely used in many industrial processes, primarily for curing, purification and sterilization. The measurement of high-energy ultraviolet radiation places particular demands on the design and calibration of suitable instrumentation. Gigahertz-Optik GmbH offers a comprehensive product range of instruments and measurement accessories for measuring high energy ultraviolet radiation, a selection of which are presented in the application examples on this page.

Laser radiation

Laser Radiation Measurements

Gigahertz-Optik GmbH produces instruments for measuring optical radiation from the lasers and laser diodes that are widely used in measurement, analytical and telecommunication equipment as well as in sensor technologies. The product range includes instruments for measuring continuous, modulated and pulsed radiation.



Photomedicine uses special optical radiation sources for therapeutic, diagnostic, endoscopic, illumination and dental curing purposes. Gigahertz-Optik GmbH produces a wide range of measuring instruments that measure the intensity and efficacy of these sources. There follows some example applications using Gigahertz-Optik GmbH products.

Image sensor

Image Sensors and Cameras

The testing and characterization of devices such as image sensors, industrial cameras, hyperspectral imaging sensors and optoelectronic detectors requires the use of light sources with highly uniform light distribution. Gigahertz-Optik GmbH produces a wide range of homogenous (uniform) light sources with integrating spheres and LED panels with which the uniformity and performance of image sensors and industrial cameras can be determined. Some application examples are presented on this page.

Optical material properties

Optical Material Properties

The optical properties of materials include such measures as reflection, transmission, absorption, fluorescence and photoluminescence. Gigahertz-Optik GmbH offers measuring instruments and accessories, calibration standards, and calibration services for measuring optical material properties. Application examples from these product ranges are presented on this page.
