Paper Abstract

Measurement of optical coatings rely on spectrometers that are built primarily for measuring chemicals, where relative transmission or reflection is of prime concern. Spectral data for optical components on the other hand demand absolute photometric accuracy. The decision regarding what type of spectrophotometer system to use requires careful attention. Measuring transmittance through a wide range of refractive indices in materials can be challenging.
