Abstract
As part of an effort to reduce uncertainties in the radiometric calibrations of integrating sphere sources and standard lamp irradiance sources, the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Radiometric Calibration Facility (RCF) primary radiometer was characterized at the NIST facility for Spectral Irradiance and Radiance Calibrations with Uniform Sources (SIRCUS). Specifically, the radiometer's slit spectral function was measured and the magnitude of out-of-band stray light was determined. The characterization also revealed significant contributions of spectral stray light due to fluorescence of the radiometer's input sphere. The RCF examined the effects of stray light and sphere fluorescence in the radiometer on source radiance calibrations along with approaches to reduce those sources of measurement error.
