An optical measurement system composed of an optical microscope (Olympus BX60) and an optical multichannel analyzer (EGG OMA 1460) has been assembled and tested. The optical microscope allows the user to make measurements on a small and well defined area of the sample. The light source, a 100 W halogen lamp, and the diode array detector, result in high sensitivity in the wavelength region of 450-750 nm. The spectral resolution of the instrument is listed as 0.59 nm/channel. The full width at half maximum (FWHM) of the strongest peaks in calibration measurements on a mercury lamp is 5 channels corresponding to 3 nm. Quasifractal clusters of gold particles have been produced with electron beam lithography. The clusters consists of different numbers of particles, giving a cluster size variation from 1.6 m to 50 m. The individual gold particles are 50 nm in diameter each. The measurement system has been used to measure both absolute transmittance and the relative transmittance using the uncoated substrate as a reference
