Paper Abstract

A project is described in which the synchrotron radiation output from the NBS storage ring known as SURF II, will be measured using a well characterized silicon based radiometer. The radiometer consists of a silicon photodiode coupled with two interference filters to restrict the spectral response to a finite and convenient spectral region for the measurement. Considerations required for the characterization of the radiometer will be discussed. The absolute radiant flux from the storage ring is also calculable from various machine parameters. A measurement of the number of circulating electrons will be derived from electron counting techniques at low levels. This will yield an important intercomparison between two entirely different determinations of the synchrotron radiant flux.
