Abstract

A mathematical procedure is suggested to verify the constancy of the measurement conditions and the measuring apparatus, respectively. The derived quantities are statistical variables of a normal distribution, so quantitative criteria can be given to determine the goodness of the measurement and apparatus. They also help to decide if systematic errors are present during the measurement and also allow to test if the estimated error of the measured data is correct. The proposed method has been tested on spectra measured by the electrostatic electron spectrometer ESA-21 [1].
