The candela, symbol cd, is the unit of luminous intensity in a given direction; its magnitude is set by fixing the numerical value of the luminous efficacy of monochromatic radiation of frequency 540 x [10.
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).
Figure 3 shows the spectral responsivity, determined in monochromatic radiation, of two broadband UV meters used in semiconductor photolithography to determine the total exposure of a photoresist to 365 nm radiation from a filtered mercury source [4].
