|For light souces, displays and signs, we measure the amount of light produced, its colour, its rendering quaility and its spatial or angular distribution. We also report the energy efficiency (LOR, luminous efficacy, energy efficiency index) and photobiological risk group. We compile photometric data in .ies and .ldt (EULUMDAT) standard formats as well as UGR glare rating tables. We also measure the optical properties of materials (reflectance, transmittance and scatter). » More
