Hydrogen Cyanide H13C14N Absorption Reference for 1530 nm to 1560 nm Wavelength Calibration SRM 2519



Sarah L. Gilbert, William C. Swann, Chih-Ming Wang


This Standard Reference Material (SRM) is intended for use in calibrating the wavelength scale of wavelength measuring equipment in the spectral region from 1528 nm to 1563 nm. SRM 2519 is an optical-fiber-coubled absorption cell containing hydrogen cyanide (H13C14N) gas. Hydrogen cyanide has more than 50 accurately measured absorption lines in the 1500 nm wavelength region.
