The spectroradiometry laboratory has a set of spectroradiometric instruments allowing measurements in an indoor and controlled environment,

including a darkroom with all the necessary equipment to calibrate measuring devices.

These instruments cover the range of solar (visible, near-infrared and short-wave infrared), thermal and microwave electromagnetic radiation. It allows the assembly of experiments in a controlled environment on the optical, thermal and microwave properties of natural or artificial materials on the earth’s surface.
