- In this paper we describe the calibration of a photometer designed to measure the cosmic microwave background radiation in the frequency range from 3 to 10 cm/sup -1/. The general problem of absolute calibration for such measurements is discussed. The design of a new experiment which is different in most important respects from the Woody-Richards experimentis then presented. A mathematical model of the calibration procedure is developed which includes an analysis of ways in which the procedure can fail to give accurate results.
