NOTE: Participants with limited experience in estimating measurement uncertainty would benefit from first attending the Introduction to Estimating Measurement Uncertainty course.

Knowledge and skills

The course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to:

  • understand the fundamentals of radiometry and photometry
  • understand the principles of operation of a range of electrical, optical and mechanical equipment
  • identify various sources of error that affect radiometric measurements


The topics covered include:

  • terminology and basic concepts
  • spectoradiometry
  • sources
  • colorimetry
  • detectors
  • sources of error
  • optical equipment
  • primary standards
  • electrical equipment
  • photometry
  • traceability and international standards
  • UV radiometry
  • calculating measurement uncertainty
  • laboratory demonstrations
  • sources of error and calculating measurement uncertainty*

*Participants with limited experience in estimating measurement uncertainty would benefit from attending the one-day Introduction to Estimating Measurement Uncertainty course prior this training event.

Past Attendees have said...

“Through this course we have gained a greater understanding of radiometry and photometry so we can make more accurate measurement decisions in our lab”

"I am now able to utilize equipment that is not being used to its full potential, which to reduce uncertainty."
