Once is Enough in Radiometric Calibrations



Gerald T. Fraser, Charles E. Gibson, Howard W. Yoon, Albert C. Parr


The successful development of an Optical Technology Division quality system for optical radiation measurement services has provided the opportunity to reconsider the existing calibration procedures to improve quality and reduce costs. We have instituted process in our calibration programs which eliminates noninfomative repetitive measurements and instead concentrates our efforts at controlling and understanding the process. The program in the first our calibration services to undergo the revisions is described in this paper.
