Frequently Asked Questions
Calibration standards are used to calibrate and verify the accuracy of measurement instruments and systems. They provide a known reference point for measurements and can help ensure the reliability and consistency of measurement results.
There are various types of calibration standards available, including wavelength standards, power standards, spectral radiance standards, and luminance standards. Each type of standard is designed to provide a specific reference point for measurement and calibration.
The choice of calibration standard will depend on the specific needs and requirements of your application. Factors to consider include the type of measurement instrument or system being calibrated, the measurement range, the accuracy required, and the spectral range or wavelength of the light source being used.
The frequency of calibration will depend on a number of factors, including the type of instrument, the environmental conditions it is used in, and the required accuracy of the measurements. As a general rule, it is recommended to calibrate instruments at regular intervals, typically every six months to one year.
In general, it is best to use a calibration standard from the same manufacturer as the measurement instrument to ensure compatibility and accuracy. However, it is possible to use standards from different manufacturers if they are calibrated and certified to the same reference standards and the measurement instrument has the appropriate calibration capabilities.
