Radiometry involve techniques that uses visible light to measure electromagnetic radiations. Contrary to photometric techniques, these techniques characterize the segregation of radiation’s power in space. Radiometry is different from basic quantum techniques like photon counting. Radiometric detectors are used to analyze drug pathways, assess environmental contaminations and protect laboratory environments. Radiometric detectors are considered to be the gold standard and are extensively used for these applications because of their high specificity and sensitivity to light. Radiometric detectors are designed for precise management of beta counting, gamma counting and related methods. Other applications that involve radiometric detectors are color processing, transport, spectroscopy, imaging applications in pharmaceutical and chemical industries and other medical communication sectors. Commonly used radiometric detectors produce several changes in their electrical attributes; mainly, voltage, current, temperature, or resistance. It is then measured electrically. Majority of the cases involve the output to be displayed by the detectors, and is then calibrated to analyze the amount of light absorbed by radiometric detectors.
