How to determine fluence in bench-scale UV-LED setups?

A new paper has been published on fluence determination in UV-LED setups, taking the quasi-point source properties of UV-LEDs into consideration. The standard method by Bolton and Linden (2003) for mercury UV lamps is followed with modifications to tune it up for UV-LED setups.
Shinya Watanabe and Kumiko Oguma
A Simple and Practical Method for Fluence Determination in Bench-Scale UV-LED setups. Photochemistry and Photobiology, 2022. Just accepted.
