Uncertainty calculation for spectral-responsivity measurements
John H. Lehman, Chih-Ming Wang, Marla L. Dowell, Joshua A. Hadler
This paper discusses a procedure for measuring the absolute spectral responsivity of optical-fiber power meters and computation of the calibration uncertainty. The procedure reconciles measurement results associated with a monochromator-based measurement system with those obtained with laser sources coupled with optical fiber. Relative expanded uncertainties based on the methods from the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement and from Supplement 1 to the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement -Propagation of Distributions using a Monte Carlo Method are derived and compared. An example is used to illustrate the procedures and calculation of uncertainties.
