For customers seeking to characterize diodes without soldering them to a thermal management system requires measuring the light output (power) of the device in a way that minimizes the impact of heat generation. This application note outlines the recommended method—a pulse measurement approach that limits heat generation in the device and provides reliable, repeatable output power measurement—that customers can follow as part of their own LED quality control and product development processes.
