Abstract

An intercomparison of spectral responsivity measurements has been carried out among the national laboratories of 13 countries. Measurements were made at wavelengths of 1300 and 1550 nm, which are important in optical communication systems. Three germanium photodiodes were circulated in each of three separate paths, beginning and ending at the National Institute of Standards and Technology as the coordinating laboratory. The results show agreement within 1%.
