Gigahertz-Optik Inc., Amesbury, Massachusetts, a manufacturer of UV-VIS-NIR optical radiation measurement instrumentation, will sponsor an online course to be presented by The Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The course will be held on Sept. 14 and 16, 2020.
The LRC has been conducting research in the area of UV disinfection systems for over 20 years, including the proper measurement, evaluation and application of these systems. Based on this knowledge, the LRC has developed an online course on UV measurement and application to assist lighting specifiers, facility managers, end-users and others to ensure that the UV systems they select are safe, being applied properly in each application, and are effective at providing required disinfection properties.
Gigahertz-Optik will sponsor the online course and will provide UV radiometric instrumentation to demonstrate measurement techniques and how to properly evaluate UV disinfection products in terms of UV-C germicidal efficacy and health hazard assessment.
