Lighting Research Center - Online UV Measurement Course


The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a growing interest in the use of UV (ultraviolet) systems for disinfection in a range of applications. However, it is important that anyone who is interested in applying UV in buildings understands how to properly specify and measure UV lighting products and systems.

The Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has been conducting research in the area of UV disinfection systems for over 20 years, including the proper measurement, evaluation, and application of these systems. Based on this knowledge, the LRC has developed an online course on UV measurement and application to assist lighting specifiers, facility managers, end-users and others to ensure that the UV systems they select are safe, being applied properly in each application, and are effective at providing required disinfection properties.

Gigahertz-Optik will sponsor the online course and will provide UV radiometric instrumentation to demonstrate measurement techniques and how to properly evaluate UV disinfection products in terms of UV-C germicidal efficacy and health hazard assessment.
