We have developed single photon detector efficiency calibrations and are now offering them as a calibration service. Please contact sonia.buckley [at] nist.gov (Sonia Buckley) directly to discuss.
In addition to our many calibration services for laser power and energy instruments available at the NIST Store, the Applied Physics Division conducts research on a variety of problems in the characterization of optoelectronics components. Consequently, we are interested in discussing and supporting all measurements involving laser detectors, sources, components, and instrumentation. Examples of measurement areas where we can perform special tests include optical density or attenuation, spectral responsivity of laser power/energy instruments, D-H spectral reflectivity of materials or cavities used in temperature-based detectors, spatial nonuniformity of detectors, and detector linearity. We would like to encourage you to reach out to our technical staff Matthew.Spidell [at] nist.gov (Matthew[dot]Spidell[at]nist[dot]gov), Kyle.Rogers [at] nist.gov (Kyle[dot]Rogers[at]nist[dot]gov), Sonia.Buckley [at] nist.gov (Sonia[dot]Buckley[at]nist[dot]gov), and Brian.Simonds [at] nist.gov (Brian[dot]Simonds[at]nist[dot]gov).
While we offer multiple services for optical fiber power instruments at the NIST Store, we can also support other instrumentation used with optical fiber instruments upon request and by prearrangement. These include optical attenuator characterization, high power measurements, and power meter measurements involving unusual connector or fiber types. Please contact kyle.rogers [at] nist.gov (Kyle Rogers) for additional information.
