Calibration of optical instruments
We can determine many properties of objects by measuring the optical radiation which will be reflected or emitted by these objects. Intensity and polarisation of the radiation and its spectral, spatial and temporal distribution carry the desired information. The measuring instruments produce digital data which combine the properties of the radiation and the properties of the instrument.
OS - Calibration competence
The Institut of Optical Sensor Systems operates in Berlin Adlershof laboratories for spectral, radiometric and geometric calibration of optical sensors. The focus is on works in the infrared wavelength range. The geometric calibration is used...
