SERVICES - Non-ionising/Optical Radiation (200-800nm)

Daily Sun Protection Forecast
• We offer a daily Forecast for Sun Protection (Sun Protection Factor, UV-Index, Sun Burn Time, ..) as maps or as tabled values,
• We offer a daily Forecast for Vitamin D photosynthesis,
• We offer a daily Forecast for supoorting heliotherapy of Psoriasis
The Forecasts can also supported by verbal comments.

Measurements of Sun Protection Factors (SPF)
• Our possibilitis range from transmission measurements (glasses, materials, ...) to complete test procedure for sun cremes. Additionally we evaluate the photostability of these.

Personal Dosimetry
• We provide calibrated electronic devices (e.g. erythemally weigthed),
• temporal resolution down to 1 sec.,
• and give support in study design as well as in data analysis.

Characterisation of UV sensors and radiometers (200-800nm)
• Absolute calibration
• Spectral response
• Linearity
• Cosine Response
• Temperature Sensitivity
• Humdity Sensitivity
• and others

Characterisation of Radiation Sources (200nm-800nm)
• Spectral characterisation
• Evaluation of biological/medical effectiveness using action spectra
• Influence of aging
• Emittance along the surface
• and others

Dose-Response-Studies
• Dose-Response studies can be utilized with monochromatic radiation (200-800nm)
• or solar simulated radiation.

Transmission and Absorption Measurements of opaque materials and fluids
• Transmission can be measured in the range from 200 to 800nm

On-side measurements
• Most of the measurements and characterisation can also done on-side.
• We provide UV-irradiation devices.
• We provide UV-measuring instruments.
• We provide experimental setup.

Data Visualisation, Analysis and Modelling
• Our possibilities in data visualisation range from producing graphs, maps,..
• including statistical analysis
• to online visualisation of actually measured data.
