Detector-Based Reference Calibrations for Electro-Optical Instruments

This book discusses modern, user-friendly radiometric practices that make it possible to convert from traditional source-based optical radiation measurements to the more efficient and higher accuracy detector-based applications and calibrations. It considers improved performance optical detector and radiometer standards including photometers and tristimulus colorimeters, and describes research-based design considerations, measurement of radiometric, optical, and electronic characteristics, and comparison of absolute-, transfer-, and working-standard detectors and radiometers from the ultraviolet (UV) to the infrared (IR) range. The book will serve to guide the optical radiation measurement community, researchers, manufacturers, calibration laboratories, students, and practicing engineers to switch from the old and limited-use measurement methods to the higher performance detector-based applications. The radiometer standards discussed here can be used to produce wide range radiometric, photometric, colour, and radiation temperature measurements with low uncertainty.

Dr George P. Eppeldauer retired from the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in October 2019, having previously served as Project Leader of Detector Metrology. During his career, he developed standard optical radiometers, photometers, colorimeters, and radiation thermometers, and realized detector responsivity based scales. He was the lead author and editor of the NIST Technical Notes #1438 and #1621, and he received the Gold Medal Award from the US Department of Commerce in 2010 for developing SIRCUS, the highest accuracy reference spectral-responsivity calibration facility of NIST. He is the author of 198 articles and book chapters.
