Abstract: We present the results of the first systematic “round-robin” comparison of far-infrared transmittance spectra measurements, which was performed by five laboratories and piloted by Physikalisch-Technische (PTB). The transmittance spectra of four different samples were measured by the participating laboratories in the 600 cm–1 to 10 cm–1 range (16.67 µm to 1000 µm) in a blind comparison. Different types of instruments, Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrometers of Michelson type and a laser radiation-based system were used for the transmittance measurements. FT-IR spectrometers are the most popular and commonly used instruments for the spectral characterization of materials in the infrared spectral range, and are well established for quantitative measurements in the mid- and near-infrared spectral ranges. However, obtaining quantitative transmittance measurements in the far-infrared spectral range by means of these instruments is challenging, because it involves weaker radiation sources, stronger diffraction effects, significant radiation originating from the sample itself and temperature gradients inside the spectrometer that may not be given proper consideration. Therefore, this comparison was initiated to test the actual capability of and identify problems with FT-IR transmittance measurements in this spectral region. We discuss the results and the possible reasons for the observed discrepancies.We present the results of the first systematic “round-robin” comparison of far-infrared transmittance spectra measurements, which was performed by five laboratories and piloted by Physikalisch-Technische (PTB).
