Abstract

The supplementary light method of Reule was applied to calibrate a simple phototube photometer to an absolute accuracy of ±0.006% (95% confidence limits). The photometer was then used to determine the photometric accuracy of a General Electric recording spectrophotometer. The photometric scale of this instrument was shown to be accurate to within 0.1% over its entire range.
