As new laser applications continue to develop, measurement accuracy has become an even more critical issue. Demands for improved accuracy have led to new NIST laser standards and measurement techniques, as well as to increasing diversity of the group of calibration customers. The NIST laser calibration services support a variety of detectors, including thermal and semiconductor devices, and span a wide range of laser powers and energies. The NIST customer base now includes detector and laser manufacturers around the world: standards laboratories, research facilities, military sites, and laser instrument manufacturers.
