Testing at ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths requires care and experience to obtain meaningful results. Laboratory measurements by major research institutions are often found to be erroneous by factors of two. The Rutgers Test Facility was established by NASA to provide high-quality vacuum UV testing for researchers from around the country who are developing UV image sensors.

As of 1-Jan-14, the laboratory ceased operations.
