The larger radiant powers at the detector should provide high spectral quality for the tongue spectra.
All inks, coatings, or adhesives will absorb the UV arriving at the surface, but the radiant power available deeper within the film will depend on the absorption in the film.
Examining this law as it relates to radiant power absorbed in the top (surface) and the bottom (contact layer) of a film permits the analysis shown in Figure 1.
From Table 7, it is understandable that a "clear" material can tolerate a wide range in irradiance before the radiant power level in the material is diminished to the point that cure is affected.
The signal dynamic range, for a minimum signal-to-noise ratio of 100, will be from about 68 [micro]V to 5 V (at the preamplifier output), which corresponds to a radiant power range of 34 nW to 2.5 mW.
As calculated from the 1.6 A/W responsivity, the 4 nA detector current corresponds to a radiant power of about 2.5 nW at the 9 [micro]m peak responsivity of the 2 mm diameter PV HgCdTe detector.
A radiant power range of 34 nW to 2.5 mW can be measured by this PC HgCdTe detector current meter with a relative standa rd uncertainty of 1 % (coverage factor k = 1).
