Low optical power reference detector implemented in the validation of two independent techniques for calibrating photon-counting detectors.
We introduce a technique for measuring detection efficiency that is traceable to the primary standard, the cryogenic radiometer, through a reference silicon photodiode trap detector. The trapExpand
