LED Radiometer research
LED radiometer an instrument for measuring LED curing light output

“I have long been an advocate of using an independent radiometer to test the light output of the curing lights in the office. At least once a month, all curing lights should be tested to ensure that the output is sufficient to photocure your materials. The LED radiometer that is calibrated for LED lights only. It will measure the light energy between 400 and 500 nanometers and displays a readout from 0 to 2000 mW/cm2. Most composite restorations will fail if the material is not fully cured. This inexpensive unit will allow you to independently determine the strength of your light.”
