Nichia's standard LEDs were designed and developed in collaboration with the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) as dedicated calibration standards for the photometric and radiometric quantities of LED products. These standard LEDs need to be calibrated using appropriate procedures in order to establish a traceability system from the national standards for the desired photometric and radiometric quantities. In response to requests from Nichia's customers, Nichia also provides JCSS accredited calibration services for standard LEDs.（Available in Japan only)
