Title: A Summary of Heat-Flux Sensor Calibration Data
Published: Date Unknown
Abstract: This paper presents a statistical evaluation of the responsivity data on a number of heat-flux sensors, calibrated using an electrical substitution radiometer as a transfer standard up to 5 W cm-2. The sensors, furnished by the customers, were of circular-foil or thermopile type. Comparison of the NIST and the customer measured responsivity values showed that the measurements agree within 3 % for most of the sensors. Considering the variation in the customer calibration techniques and the wide measuring range of the sensors used in the calibration, the agreement
