Fee Schedule for Windowless Al2O3 Photodiodes

 

Aluminum oxide (Al2O3) photodetectors are available from NIST as transfer standard detectors in the vacuum ultraviolet spectral region. Al2O3 devices are calibrated in the wavelength range from 5 nm to 122 nm only. At longer wavelengths, there is no significant photoemission yield.

In addition to these Al2O3 detectors, the Vacuum UV Transfer Standard Program issues other types of transfer standard detectors:

The fee sheet for all detector types is available as a PDF file.

Inquiries and orders should be directed to Rob Vest.

Photodiodes being returned to NIST for recalibration must be removed from user fixtures prior to shipment to NIST.

U.S. Orders: Fees are FOB destination (UPS ground). Terms are net 30.

Foreign Orders: It is NIST policy that orders originating from outside the U.S. be paid in advance. The NIST Calibration Program provides information about and makes arrangements for prepayment. Foreign orders will be shipped via air freight. Customs duties are the responsibility of the customer.
