Abstract:

A working panel composed of representatives from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada was established to prepare a joint standard on infrared detector measurements. This standard recommends the kind of tests to be made on infrared detectors and the manner of presenting the test results, with the following 2 major aims 1 the method of presentation shall be such that reports of any testing laboratory will be immediately intelligible to infrared workers in all 3 countries, and 2 the test results shall have maximum utility for the users of detectors. This standard is intended primarily to include all common types of visible and infrared detectors that provide a useful measure of the total radiation incident on the respond sufficient data will be presented to permit a user to estimate the performance of a detector in a particular application.
