About the Optics & Radiometry Laboratory (ORLAB)

Welcome to the Optics and Radiometry Laboratory (ORLAB). We are a self-sustaining test, calibration and research facility associated with the School of Optometry and Vision Science, UNSW. We have over thirty years of expertise in the areas of light, colour and optical testing. With this experience, our facility provides services to industry, maintains a research program and plays an active role in supporting standards development at the national and international levels.

ORLAB has been accredited to ISO 17025 by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) since 1985 for a large range of activities.  

For much of the scope of testing, ORLAB is the only accredited laboratory in New South Wales and is the only accredited laboratory in Australia for many services.
