OMT Solutions BV is a R&D company situated on the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. OMT Solutions offers an extensive package of products and services, such as:

• Characterization of architectural and automotive glazing
• Characterization of patterned and diffuse glass
• Calibration of reference materials
• Optical Measurements and Testing of materials for Space applications
• Variable Angle Spectroscopy
• Refractive index measurements
• Determining optical and thermal radiation properties of materials
• BRDF/BTDF measurements
• Thin Film analysis and design
• Training, Conferences & Workshops

The facilities at OMT Solutions include spectrophotometers and tools that enable us to perform various optical measurements in a wavelength range between 175 nm and 56,000 nm, covering the entire solar energy and thermal radiation range.


Based on many years of experience and knowledge on performing measurements on the highest possible level of accuracy, using techniques and tools that we have developed ourselves, we are able to offer not only our services as a measurement laboratory but also offer to build customized solutions for our customers that are interested in performing these state–of-the-art measurements themselves.


Brief History

1995: The Optical Measurements & Testing group (OMT) is founded as part of the Coating Technology Department of the Materials Division of TNO Science & Industry
May 2008: The private company OMT Solutions BV is founded



Quenching the thirst of concentrated solar power plants

mei 31, 2019

Concentrated solar power – CSP – has the potential to bring energy to remote areas of the world. The heat of the sun is reflected off rows of mirrors onto a central tower, transforming water into steam and turning a turbine which then generates electricity. Read more [Source: euronews]

Last week we delivered a High Temperature reflectance accessory. This is a custom designed 150 mm integrating sphere accessory for reflectance measurements in the wavelength range 250-2500 nm with sample heater with temperature controller.

Observing the Earth

Pround to be part of this great project

Launched on 13 October, the Sentinel-5P satellite has delivered its first images of air pollution. Even though the satellite is still being prepared for service, these first results have been hailed as exceptional and show how this latest Copernicus satellite is set to take the task of monitoring air quality into a new era.

This new mission promises to image air pollutants in more detail than ever before. And, while these first results demonstrate the sophistication of the satellite’s instrument, they certainly bring the issue of air pollution sharply into focus. Read more [Source:]
