Paper Abstract

A laser power meter has been developed which can measure absolute power output to better than 0.1%. The power meter has a flat spectral response from ultraviolet to far infrared and is essentially 100% linear over its full dynamic range. The power meter has long term stability better than 0.001% per day. The operation of the power meter is discussed and performance measurement data are presented.
