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
