Abstract

The optical characteristics of a newly designed two-step pyranometer head are described. The head is suitable for use in the spectral range 400-720 nm. It is characterized by a cosine error which is less than 1.5% over the angular range 0-85° and has a differential polarization cosine error no greater than 3.0% in that same angular interval.
