Photometric or radiometric characterization of detectors or detector arrays requires uniform, stable illuminance or irradiance. For the measurement of linearity or spectral linearity the illuminance/irradiance level should be variable without changing either the spectral or angular distribution of the beam. A realization of a set-up using a glass rod as homogenizer is shown. The achieved uniformity is better than +/- 2% over a 40 mm diameter area. The irradiance and illuminance are over 3 mW/cm2 and 20 klux respectively. Suitable choosing the lamp current the set-up produces the spectral distribution of a standard illuminant A recommended by CIE for the measurements of image sensors.
