It is of utmost importance in any field of research to control, quantify, and objectively describe the conditions of an experiment. Much of the literature in photo-biology lacks adequate, and occasionally any, measurement of the radiation. This is no longer acceptable. Recent advancements in electro-optics technology have produced readily available, versatile, and relatively precise ultraviolet radiometry equipment. This chapter reviews radiometric techniques and devices, with emphasis on the ultraviolet region.
