Abstract

The optical reference plane of a J1002 shaped dome diffuser from CMS-Schreder was determined using direct normal spectral solar UV irradiance measurements relative to a flat Teflon diffuser. The spectroradiometers were calibrated relative to the same irradiance standard. The optical reference plane of the shaped J1002 diffuser is 5.3 mm behind the top of the dome with an uncertainty of 1.0 mm . Solar UV irradiance measurements based on a lamp calibration using the top of the dome as the reference will overestimate the global solar irradiance by 2.1% for the usual calibration distance of 500 mm .
