Simplify LED IVL characterisation for rapid results

A long-term and low cost LED characterisation and lifetime measurement system


The Ossila LED Measurement System provides a low cost and complete solution for performing current-voltage-luminance (IVL or JVL) characterisation of LEDs. The device holder has built-in light sensors to allow for illuminance, luminance, and white count measurements. To simplify device testing, the software will also calculate the current and power efficiency of your LED. Lifetime mode, meanwhile, measures the performance of the LED over an extended time under a constant voltage.

The system is compatible with all Ossila substrate systems, so it is easy to both fabricate and test LED devices. Please refer to the table under the specifications tab if you are not sure which model you should choose.

The Ossila LED Measurement System is covered by our FREE 2-year warranty and included in our FREE worldwide shipping offer.

Looking for the Ossila OLED Lifetime Measurement System?

The LED Measurement System replaces the OLED Lifetime Measurement System. The new device holder and upgraded software package together add support for new characterisation measurements, but it is still easy to take OLED lifetime measurements with the LED Measurement System. If you are looking for a manual device, consider the Ossila Source Measure Unit.

What is an IVL (or JVL) measurement?


IVL, or current-voltage-luminance, is the main method for electrically characterising light emitting diodes (LEDs). In IVL measurements, the current (I or J) passing through a device and the emitted light are measured as an applied voltage (V) is swept between two points. From this measurement, multiple properties can be determined, including the luminance (L), current efficiency, and power efficiency (also known as efficacy).

Key Features

Rapid Characterisation

Our intuitive software (included) makes it easy to take current-voltage-luminance measurements. The system records illuminance, luminance and white count. To speed up the characterisation process, the system will then calculate both the current efficiency and power efficiency of your LED.

Quick and Easy

Plug in the system, install the PC software, and you're ready to go! The Ossila LED Measurement System has been designed by research scientists to address the frustrations associated with measuring and characterising LEDs. The intuitive interface and clean design make the system simple and easy-to-use.

Wide Measurement Range

The built-in Source Measure Unit is capable of delivering voltages between -10 V and +10 V, with a maximum resolution of 170 μV, measuring currents from as low as ±10 nA up to ±200 mA, and illuminance up to 100 klx.

Measure Device Stability

By applying a constant voltage and measuring the current, luminance, and efficiency over an extended period of time, the stability of LEDs can be tracked and analysed.

Intuitive Software

Our intuitive PC software (included) makes it faster and easier to characterise LEDs. Create and save settings profiles, plot your data in real time, and export the results as a CSV file.

LED IVL Software

LED IVL Software

Intuitive software for performing current-voltage-luminance measurements and constant voltage stability measurements. Collecting data is as simple as entering your experimental parameters and clicking measure. Data is plotted in real-time as it is measured, with the ability to select which data is plotted on each y-axis. All data is saved to CSV files so that you are never locked into one ecosystem. Settings profiles can be created so that you can quickly and easily repeat your measurement or perform similar scans.

The LED current-voltage-luminance measurement is controlled using intuitive and user-friendly PC software. All of the measurements can be fully customised so that you can tailor the software to your experiment.

With the PC software, you can:

  1. Perform current-voltage-luminance measurements anywhere between -10 and 10 V.
  2. Take high resolution measurements, with voltage increments as low as 1 mV.
  3. Manage the experiment more directly, with custom settle times between applying voltage and measuring current.
  4. Measure illuminance, luminance, white count, current efficiency, and power efficiency using the built-in sensors.
LED IVL Software
LED IVL Software

The software has two measurement tabs: characterisation and lifetime. Characterisation mode performs I-V measurements of LEDs while measuring the illuminance, luminance, white count, and calculating the current and power efficiencies. The lifetime mode enables you to set a constant voltage and measure the performance of the LED over an extended time.

Data is saved to .csv (comma-separated value) files, which are formatted to be easy to read and analyse. Settings are saved along with the data, making it easier to keep a record of parameters you use for each experiment. Additionally, settings profiles can be saved for each different type, so that you can easily perform repeat measurements or use particular configurations.
