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.
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

Observing the Earthdecember 8, 2017
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: esa.int]
