Abstract

A technique is described for determining the relative efficiency with wavelength of a monochromator and detector system using single photon detection. The method described utilizes a commercially available standard of spectral irradiance and provides a convenient, straightforward, and accurate technique for making the calibration, which is applicable over large ranges of wavelength and detector sensitivity. The calibration procedure has been designed to fill a need in atomic spectroscopy for a convenient method of determining the relative intensities of spectral lines in measurements which require single photon detection.
