calorimeter

an instrument for measuring quantities of heat, e.g. a BOMB CALORIMETER measures the heat output on burning a sample of material. Calorific values used in energetics are now measured in JOULES rather than CALORIES.

Figure 1 shows a diagram of the previous NIST high-power laser detector calibration system in which a WTM was used as a beamsplitter to provide simultaneous beams to the device under test (DUT) and the primary standard calorimeter. In order to obtain the desired power-splitting ratio of the transmitted to the reflected beams, materials with the appropriate index of refraction at the operating laser wavelength were used.
