Upper-room Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) is commonly used as an environmental control measure to minimize the risk of transmission of airborne pathogens. Characterizing UVGI luminaires, in a laboratory and in situ, is essential in understanding the radiant intensity distributions delivered by the same designed luminaire, operating under different conditions. This understanding may be used in future design applications, such as computer-aided design (CAD), to calibrate the difference in behavior of luminaires between laboratory and in situ scenarios.
