Paper Abstract

A practical calorimetric method suitable for the ultraviolet calibration of laser joulemeters is described. Excimer laser pulses are used as the light source for the calibration, and the method is inherently insensitive to instrumental nonlinearities and thermal losses. A study of the behavior of pyroelectric joulemeters under excimer irradiation demonstrates the advisability of periodic recalibration of these devices.
