NIST Measurement Services: cw Laser Power and Energy Calibrations at NIST
Joshua A. Hadler, Christopher L. Cromer, John H. Lehman
This document describes a calibration service for absolute laser power and energy measurements of laser power meters and detectors used with continuous wave lasers at laser wavelengths between 325 and 1550 nm. In addition to a summary of the calibration procedure, a theoretical discussion of the uncertainty analysis and an overview of the measurement system are presented. A sample calibration report is included in this document that is similar to that which is provided to the customer. The calibration report contains an absolute calibration factor and a summary of the uncertainty assessment for the device under test.
