Paper Abstract

A simple but accurate method is described for calibrating detector responsivity The method involves creating a far-field intensity pattern via diffraction from a circular aperture, and then computing the integrated irradiance over the detector area using well-known relations. No experimental verification has been performed, but several error sources are discussed and are expected to be small.
