Paper Abstract

One of the major problems in ensuring the accuracy of IR transmission data lies in the calibration of the measuring systems. As part of the activities of an international group a comparison of the calibration of a-number of similar transmissometers was investigated and clearly indicates the nature of the problems to be faced when trying to calibrate these or similar systems. This paper presents a summary of the effects noted and attempts to indicate the magnitude of the various sources of error and suggest a possible calibration procedure.
