Since we were founded in l945, we have built up a reputation as one of the world's leading manufacturers of all types of selenium photoelectric (photovoltaic) cells; we have also developed our own range of Megatron light meters (also called: lightmeters, illuminance meters, photometers, brightness meters, white light meters, luxmeters), matched to our photocells. The design of these meters is kept up to date to give ease of use together with the benefits of accuracy and good performance.
We aim to be flexible in the service given to our customers, so if you require a modification to one of our standard light meters, or a special-purpose instrument, please get in touch with us. Nearly all our instruments are calibrated in lux, the internationally used unit of illuminance, but we can readily supply instruments calibrated in foot candles if preferred. To maintain the performance of our instruments we offer a repair service which includes everything from a calibration check to a complete re-build of outdated equipment.
This web site introduces our range of light measuring instruments and components:
This product profile describes the properties and applications of the ProMetric® I-SC Solution Imaging Colorimeter.
The Filmetrics F20 benchtop film thickness measurement tool is a general purpose instrument for measuring thickness and refractive index.
Dynamic characterization of MEMs devices is achieved by Micro System Analyzer MSA-650 IRIS.
Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
R. Bruce Weisman
AZoOptics interviews R. Bruce Weisman from Rice University in Texas, US, who has discovered fluorescence from silicon nanoparticles in cement and how it can be used to reveal early signs of damage in concrete structures.
