MAY 21--Pro-Lite Technology (Cranfield, UK; www.pro-lite.uk.com) will hold a technical tutorial in conjunction with Labsphere (North Sutton, NH; www.labsphere.com). The tutorial will address the science of radiometry and photometry and the applications of integrating spheres in optical radiation measurements. The half-day tutorial will be held on Wednesday June 23, 2004, at the Cranfield Innovation Centre, Cranfield University, near Milton Keynes in England. The speaker is Angelo Arecchi, formerly technical director of Labsphere and an acclaimed optical engineer. Attendance is free of charge, but delegates are requested to preregister with Pro-Lite.
Arecchi will speak on the theory and application of diffuse reflectance materials, provide an overview of radiometry and photometry, and present integrating-sphere theory and design considerations. He will review divergent source radiometry and photometry, imager test and calibration, display measurements, and the measurement of the optical properties of materials.
