Standard Practice for Describing and Measuring Performance of Ultraviolet, Visible, and Near-Infrared Spectrophotometers
|Publication Date:||1 January 1993|
|ICS Code (Optical measuring instruments):||17.180.30|
1.1 This practice covers the description of requirements of spectrophotometric performance especially for ASTM methods, and the testing of the adequacy of available equipment for a specific method. The tests give a measurement of some of the important parameters controlling results obtained in spectrophotometric methods, but it is specifically not to be concluded that all the factors in instrument performance are measured.
1.1.1 This practice is not to be used (1) as a rigorous test of performance of instrumentation, or (2) to intercompare the quantitative performance of instruments of different design.
