Developments in LED technology have created an even wider range of new applications. The LED industry is booming in part due to the introduction of high intensity blue LEDs and the use of white LEDs in aerospace and lighting engineering. Increased capability and application also creates increased demands on optical characterization of LEDs. In order to meet this increased demand for a reliable, high quality product, special technological capability is necessary in order to maintain precise results that can be reproduced. The purposes of this white paper are to provide an overview of the terms used in LED testing and development for LED metrology newcomers and experienced professionals alike. Additionally, it will provide a comparison of the equipment used in the LED industry as well as recommendations for applications and obtaining accurate measurement results.
