Paper Abstract

For an elaborate assessment of the laser-calorimetric standard practice described in the International Standard ISO 11551 'Test methods for absorptance of optical laser components' an extended international round-robin test has been performed. In contrast to a former experiment with a serial concept, in the present parallel test identical commercial sample sets have been sent to the partners after an initial measurement of absorptance at the coordinator, where the experiment was completed by a final inspection and second screening measurement of absorptance. The result of the round-robin test are compared and evaluated on the basis of standard evaluation techniques and alternative statistical methods. With the exception of a few deviations, which can be attributed to specific properties of the individual measurement systems, a good agreement of the absorption values was observed.
