Uncertainties of Spectral Responsivity Measurements



George P. Eppeldauer, G Sauter, James Gardner


Uncertainty estimates of detector spectral responsivity measurements are discussed. A model describes independent (uncorrelated) uncertainty components at a given wavelength based on the measurement equation for test detector calibrations. Systematic (correlated) components across wavelength are described briefly for spectrally integrated responsivity measurements. Propagation of the random and systematic components is discussed.
