Measuring the Accuracy of Spectrometers

06/20/2005 10:15 AM

Measurements of the intensity of light at different wavelengths can be made more accurately now, thanks to a new, simple method for correcting common instrument errors. The new method, developed by researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), will benefit fields such as color measurement, lighting development, remote sensing, biotechnology and astronomy.

Every little change will make great changes in the end no matter in the color measurement, lighting development, remote sensing, biotechnology or astronomy fields.
