A goniofluorometer has been built that is capable of measuring in various viewing angles ranging from 10 ° to 90 ° . The incident angle can be varied from 0 ° to 8 ° . The goniofluorometer can measure bispectral luminescent radiance factors in the wavelength range of 250 800 nm . To our knowledge, there are no other reported results of similar devices capable of spectral measurements in various measurement geometries.
