Carbon nanotube technology, in conjunction with silicon micro-fabrication techniques, has enabled us to develop planar radiometric detectors, which has led to the establishment of a new generation of primary standards. The goal is to develop compact, fast, and easy-to-use, radiometric calibration systems, spanning the wavelength spectrum from the ultraviolet to the THz region in a single detector, suitable for use with both coherent and incoherent sources, and encompassing open beam and fibre-coupled modes of operation, with utility beyond that of the laboratory environment. Work will be presented comparing scales derived from two new table- top systems, to existing radiant power and optical fibre power scales, traceable to SI.
