The Calibration Laboratory has several custom-built, task-specific systems for performing calibrations and characterization measurements of solar UV monitoring instruments. Each year, over 100 instruments are calibrated in the laboratory. Additionally, many instruments are calibrated in the field using the portable field calibrator developed by CUCF. The Calibration Laboratory's systems include:

  • Irradiance scale transfer system
  • UV spectral responsivity measurement system
  • Angular response measurement system
  • Absolute spectral irradiance calibration
  • Portable field calibrator
