11. Absolute Flux Calibration of Stars; Calibration of the Reference Telescope
Published: 6/2/2009
Authors: Allan W. Smith, John Taylor Woodward IV, Colleen Alana Jenkins, Steven W Brown, Keith R Lykke
Abstract: Absolute stellar photometry is based on 1970s terrestrial measurements of the star Vega with instruments calibrated using the Planckian radiance from a Cu fixed-point blackbody. Significant advances in absolute radiometry have been made in the last 3 ...

12. Supercontinuum Sources for Metrology
Published: 6/2/2009
Authors: John Taylor Woodward IV, Allan W. Smith, Colleen Alana Jenkins, Chungsan Lin, Steven W Brown, Keith R Lykke
Abstract: Supercontinuum (SC) sources are novel laser-based sources that generate a broad, white-light continuum in single mode photonic crystal fibers. Currently, up to 6 W of optical power is available, spanning the spectral range from 460 nm to 2500 nm. A ...

13. Illumination with enhanced contrast as a visualization tool for clinical diagnostics and surgery
Published: 2/26/2009
Authors: Maritoni Abatayo Litorja, Steven W Brown, Yoshihiro Ohno, Chungsan Lin
Abstract: The requirements for diagnostic and surgical lighting have remained largely unchanged over the past several years illumination level, glare, shadow and tissue heating reduction are the dominant factors in choosing a lighting system. Since human visu ...

14. Stray Light Correction of the Marine Optical System
Published: 1/1/2009
Authors: M Feinholz, S Flora, M Yarbrough, Keith R Lykke, Steven W Brown, Bettye C Johnson, Dennis Clark
Abstract: The Marine Optical System is a spectrograph-based sensor used in the Marine Optical Buoy for the vicarious calibration of ocean color satellite sensors. It is also deployed from ships in instruments used to develop bio-optical algorithms that relate ...

15. The Marine Optical BuoY (MOBY) Radiometric Calibration and Uncertainty Budget for Ocean Color Satellite Sensor Vicarious Calibration
Published: 12/31/2008
Authors: M Feinholz, Bettye C Johnson, Steven W Brown, S Flora, M Yarbrough, Terrance Houlihan, D Peters, Yong S. Kim, J Mueller, Dennis Clark
Abstract: For the past decade, the Marine Optical Buoy (MOBY), an autonomous radiometric buoy stationed in the waters off Lanai, Hawaii, has been the primary in-water oceanic observatory for the vicarious calibration of the U. S. satellite ocean color sensors ...

16. Measurement science for climate remote sensing
Published: 8/20/2008
Authors: Gerald T Fraser, Steven W Brown, Raju Vsnu Datla, Bettye C Johnson, Keith R Lykke, Joseph Paul Rice
Abstract: The Earth s climate is very complex and highly variable, making it difficult to measure and model small changes that occur over decadal and longer time scales. The resulting uncertainties in measurement and modeling underlie the longterm debate over ...

17. 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 ...

18. Characterization of Earth-Observing Satellite Instruments for Response to Spectrally and Spatially Variable Scenes
Published: 12/3/2007
Authors: Steven W Brown, Bonnie Myers, R Barnes, Joseph Paul Rice
Abstract: In this work, we present a radiometric platform for the development of application-specific metrics to quantify the performance of sensors and systems viewing realistic spectral and spatial scenes. There are two components to the platform, both base ...

19. Characterization and Correction of Stray Light in Optical Instruments
Published: 11/1/2007
Authors: Yuqin Zong, Steven W Brown, G Meister, R Barnes, Keith R Lykke
Abstract: Improperly imaged, or scattered, optical radiation within an instrument is difficult to properly characterize and is often the dominant residual source of measurement error. Scattered light can originate from the spectral components of a point sour ...
