Abstract

High accuracy laser radiometry is on the verge of growth and improvements just as new laser technologies are evolving. Our present tasks are directed toward anticipating and meeting the measurement needs in two areas; higher power and shorter wavelengths. New technologies include high-power compact laser diode sources and ultraviolet laser sources and detectors. We present an overview of laser power and energy measurement challenges, identify gaps in the state-of-the-art, and describe research at NIST directed toward improved primary standards for laser power and energy measurements. Improvements are directed toward new coatings, materials, stable attenuators and standard detectors.
