mon·o·chro·mat·ic radiation

light rays or ionizing radiation of a very narrow band of wavelengths (ideally, of a single wavelength). Compare: photopeak, characteristic radiation.

The second biosensor made by our team, figure 3, is of portable type and also based on a monochromatic radiation source of laser diode type which transmits light radiation through a flexible optical fibre to an optical coupler, the latter one permitting fast and by turn connection of some interchangeable SPR wells, under the form of cylindrical rods with stainless coat, inside which there is polymer filling wherein a pack of twelve optical thin fibres (diameter of almost 100 of [micro]m) is circularly distributed around a central optical fibre of larger diameter (hundreds of [micro]m).
Although these UV meters were designed to measure monochromatic radiation, they are very similar to UV meters designed and used for broadband UV radiation.
