A laser calorimeter has been developed with a sensitivity of the order of 10-6cm-1 with one watt of laser power using a CO2 laser (9(mu) m to 11(mu) m) in the infrared region. In order to evaluate the accuracy of the laser calorimeter, the absorptance of a thin and semitransparent silicon sample was measured using the laser calorimeter in the infrared region and the transmittance and the reflectance of the same sample were also measured by a conventional Fourier-transform infrared spectrometer. Two absorptances obtained from two independent methods agree will within 2%, however it becomes clear that an interval of a Fabry-Perot interference fringe doesn't agree in absorptance spectra measured by these methods.
