NIST Gaithersburg, Maryland
The NIST Spectroradiometry Short Course is a 4-day course held at NIST Gaithersburg, Maryland. The course consists of lectures given by NIST scientists and hands-on laboratory experience measuring spectral radiance and spectral irradiance sources using spectroradiometers. Participants will also receive advice and assistance on spectroradiometric measurement and calibration issues, including traceability, measurement equations, and measurement calibrations.
Attendance for the course is limited to 15 participants. Pre-registration is required and acceptance is determined on a first-come, first-served basis.
Who Should Attend:
This course is intended for scientists, engineers, and technicians engaged in radiometric measurements and existing or potential NIST customers relying on traceability to NIST of their sources and detectors. Existing and potential NIST customers relying on traceability to NIST using sources or detectors are encouraged to attend. Participants must have some basic knowledge and experience in radiometric measurements as well as calculus. The course is suited for those who want to learn spectroradiometry systematically in depth, in theory, and in experimental practice.
