Abstract

Spectrally invariant detectors are commonly used to interpolate or extrapolate the responsivity of InGaAs detectors in the infrared from absolute calibrations at a few wavelengths. The random noise in such detectors limits the accuracy that can be achieved in a narrowband, double-monochromator setup. We propose the application of a dedicated digital filter, which reduces the uncertainty by 30%, and combine it by calibrating a group of three detectors. The uncertainties are propagated from the observed variance in the relative measurement to the combined uncertainty of 0.4% (2σ) in the responsivity values of the InGaAs detectors in the range of 1010–1640 nm.
