The thematic field of Modules & Metrology brings together the two central topics of importance to the entire Consortium:
- UV module and system development as the central interface between the technological development of UV LEDs and the actual applications and
- UV metrology as an important cross-sectional competence for the calibrated characterization of UV LEDs and optical components and for the monitoring of UV radiation modules within the various applications
Based on the developed UV LEDs emitter and receiver modules and the technologies necessary for their assembly are developed. By optimizing the overall design in terms of improving heat management, it should be possible to increase the lifespan, stability and performance characteristics of UV LEDs. Approaches to new products should also be made possible through developments in the thematic field of Modules & Metrology.
Another important problem to be solved in this thematic field consists in being able to measure the absolute optical power of UV components and the properties of optical components, spectrally resolved using standardized, traceable procedures.
