Topics - Detector Response

Detector Response Detector response can be described in two ways. The detector response can be defined as the voltage output for unit change in solute concentration flowing through the detector sensor, or, for a mass sensitive detector, the voltage output for unit change in solute mass passing through the detector. Alternatively, detector response can also be defined as the voltage output that would result from unit change in the physical property the detector measured (e.g., refractive index, or heat of combustion etc.). It is obtained experimentally from the output produced by passing a known mass, or concentration of solute through the detector.
