Abstract: We discuss the role of stellar atmosphere models in the spectrophotometric calibration pedigree. It is shown that stellar atmosphere spectra form an essential ingredient for spectrophotometric calibration. Compared with other (infrared) calibration networks currently available, the MARCS grid is shown to provide the calibration community with spectral reference energy distributions of higher accuracy improving the spectrophotometric calibration of infrared spectrometers by more than 3%.
