EMPIR PhotoLED - Future Photometry Based on Solid-State Lighting Products

The aim of the EURAMET European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) project 15SIB07 PhotoLED is to address the obsolescence of traditional incandescent standard lamp technology used in photometric calibrations and the need to support the introduction and uptake of new solid-state lighting (SSL) products. The project will develop and validate the basis for a new photometric system based on white light-emitting diodes (LEDs), by developing new LED-based calibration sources and measurement techniques supporting the specific properties of the new light sources and detector technology, including illuminance measurement of the new LED calibration sources without optical V(λ) filters in calibrations of photometers and measurement facilities used for determining the energy efficiency of new SSL products coming to market.
