Liquid and solid-state filters are calibrated by the filter manufacturers, and the corresponding filters performance certificates are supplied to customers.
Solid-state filters maintain their performance for many years when handled properly. However the performance of liquid filters degrades much quicker due to so-called slow irreversible chemical reactions, photonic-promoted chemical reactions, and other reasons.
Therefore, manufacturers of liquid calibration standards require their customers to replace their liquid filters every one to three years.
Modern development of nano-technology has allowed NSG Precision Cells to develop state-of-the art solid-state quantum resonance calibration filters. The purpose of these new reference standards is to replace the old fashioned liquid based filters, such that customers can benefit from substantial savings on filter replacements and recalibrations.
Benefits of using NSG's Nano-Deposition calibration standards is obvious. No more having to replace or recalibrate your standards. They are easy to handle and are very robust due to the scratch resistant coatings. They give highly accurate and consistent calibration every time.
NSG Precision Cell's calibration standards fit into any spectrophotometer so you don't have to worry if they will work in your equipment. The nano-deposition standards are NIST traceable and can test and calibrate photometric accuracy, wavelength accuracy, photometric resolution and stray light affect.
Please refer to primary NIST calibration standards:
Photometric accuracy: SRM 930e and SRM 1930 neutral density glass filter
Wavelength accuracy: SRM 2034 Holmium oxide solution
Wavelength accuracy is achieved through calibrating the peaks of several wavelengths in the UV, visible, and (where applicable) IR spectra.
