5. Calibration of a spectroscopic system and measurement of the solar spectrum

Instructors Dr. Motoshi Goto, Dr. Tomoko Kawate, and Dr. Chihiro Suzuki

The spectra obtained through spectroscopic measurement of the light emitted by plasmas contain diverse physical information about the plasma. To obtain meaningful physical quantities from these spectra, it is crucial to have a clear understanding of the detailed characteristics of the measurement system beforehand. In this course, we will focus on calibrating the sensitivity of a spectrometer system using a test light source. Additionally, our aim is to derive accurately calibrated solar spectra that are measured during the course.
