1. Reflectance measurements of human skin from the ultraviolet to the shortwave infrared (250 nm to 2500 nm)
Published: 5/29/2013
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, David W Allen
Abstract: While published literature of the optical properties of human skin is prevalent for the visible region, data are sparse in the ultra violet and shortwave infrared. Spectral imaging has expanded from primarily an earth remote sensing tool to a range ...

2. The evaluation of hyperspectral imaging for the detection of person-borne threat objects over the 400 nm to 1700 nm spectral region
Published: 5/10/2012
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, Jorge Enrique Neira, David W Allen
Abstract: The detection of person-borne threat objects, such as improvised explosive devices, at a safe distance is an ongoing challenge. While much attention has been given to other parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, very little is known about what potent ...

3. Hyperspectral Image Projector Applications
Published: 2/15/2012
Authors: Joseph Paul Rice, Steven W Brown, David W Allen, Howard W Yoon, Maritoni Abatayo Litorja, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: For the past several years NIST has been developing, along with several collaborators, a Hyperspectral Image Projector (HIP). This scene projector produces high-resolution programmable spectra and projects them into dynamic two-dimensional images ...

4. Investigation of the potential use of hyperspectral imaging for stand-off detection of person-borne IEDs
Published: 5/23/2011
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, David W Allen
Abstract: Advances in hyperspectral sensors and algorithms in numerous fields of research have opened up new possibilities for its use in the detection of person-borne IEDs. While portions of the electromagnetic spectrum, such as the x-ray and terahertz regio ...

5. NIST Measurement Services: Regular Spectral Transmittance
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 250-69
Published: 3/10/2011
Authors: David W Allen, Edward A. Early, Benjamin K Tsai, Catherine C Cooksey
Abstract: This document describes measurement services, instrumentation, and measurement techniques for regular spectral transmittance over the spectral range from 250 nm to 2500 nm at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Section 2 explains the ...

6. The Extension of the NIST BRDF Scale from 1100 nm to 2500 nm
Published: 8/21/2009
Authors: Howard W Yoon, David W Allen, George P Eppeldauer, Benjamin K Tsai
Abstract: Measurements of bi-directional reflectance factor for diffuse reflectance from 1100 nm to 2500 nm using extended-range indium gallium arsenide (exInGaAs) detectors in the NIST Spectral Tri-function Automated Reference Reflectometer (STARR) facility ...

7. Hyperspectral Image Compressive Projection Algorithm
Published: 6/1/2009
Authors: Joseph Paul Rice, Jorge Enrique Neira, David W Allen
Abstract: We describe a compressive projection algorithm and quantitatively assess its performance when used with a Hyperspectral Image Projector (HIP). The HIP is being developed by NIST for system-level performance testing of hyperspectral and multispectral ...

8. Hyperspectral Projection of a Coral Reef Scene using the NIST Hyperspectral Image Projector
Published: 6/1/2009
Authors: David W Allen, Joseph Paul Rice, James A Goodman
Abstract: Improving the understanding of the optical scene components associated with coral reef imagery will advance the ability to map and monitor coral reefs using remote sensing. One tool that may aid in understanding the components in these scenes is the ...

9. Holmium Oxide Glass Wavelengths Standards
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 1/1/2008
Author: David W Allen
Abstract: Holmium oxide glass has been used as a wavelength standard for over four decades. These standards have shown very little variation from batch to batch and from one manufacturer to another. NIST has certified and recertified holmium oxide glass samp ...

10. Dynamically Programmable Digital Tissue Phantoms
Published: 12/31/2007
Authors: Steven W Brown, Joseph Paul Rice, David W Allen, Maritoni Abatayo Litorja, Karel Zuzak, Edward Livingston
Abstract: As optical imaging modalities gain acceptance for medical diagnostics and become common in clinical applications, standardized protocols to quantitatively assess optical sensor performance are required to ensure commonality in measurements and to val ...
