Title: Comparison of absolute measurements of laser power using next generation NIST high power radiometer and Air Force high power calorimeter
Published: June 08, 2011
Abstract: We report comparisons of laser power measurements between the new NIST radiometer, also known as the BB Prime, and the current Air Force standards, known as the BB calorimeter. [1] These measurements were performed using high power laser sources in the Air Force‰s Laser Hardened Materials Evaluation Laboratory
