Building electro-optical instrumentation to take measurements is not easy because of the various factors can introduce inaccuracies, errors, and bias. It is necessary to know the common parameters that should be taken into account when the decision is made to build an electro-optical system. This chapter illustrates some interesting applications in the area of using led for public lighting and photoacoustic spectroscopy.
