This would include transmittance, reflectance, optical rotation, refractive index, photometry, spectroradiometry, Fibre optic power meters and laser power.
  • Practical experience in a measurement laboratory environment practising optical calibration, including specialist experience in the following; spectrophotometry, refractometry, polarimetry, colourimetry, photometry, laser power and fibre optics.
  • For fibre optics calibrations additional knowledge of data transfer and modulation techniques would be an advantage.
  • Specialist experience of laser and laser diode types along with laser power standards BS EN 60825 and BS EN 62471 would be essential.

It is important that our assessors are acceptable to a wide range of accredited bodies, and therefore it is important that they can demonstrate a good degree of impartiality.
