1. A collection and statistical analysis of skin reflectance signatures for inherent variability over the 250 nm to 2500 nm spectral range
Published: 6/4/2014
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, Benjamin K Tsai, David W Allen
Abstract: The spectral reflectance signature of human skin provides opportunities to advance observations ranging from medical treatment to security applications. In this study 28 volunteers participated in a skin reflectance measurement of the inside of the r ...

2. Bidirectional reflectance scale comparison between NIST and PTB
Published: 5/1/2015
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, Maria E Nadal, David W Allen, Kai-Olaf Hauer, Andreas Hoepe
Abstract: A comparison of bidirectional reflectance scales between the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) has been performed. Measurements of two sets of white diffuse reflectance standard ...

3. Broadband transmission filter 2013 OIC manufacturing problem contest
Published: 1/10/2014
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, Li Li, J. A. Dobrowolski, Michael Jacobson
Abstract: A broadband transmission filter from 400nm to 1100nm was selected for the manufacturing problem contest. The premise of the contest is to test the state of the art of current optical thin film manufacturing capabilities. A total 37 people from 15 tea ...

4. Establishment and application of the 0/45 reflectance factor scale over the shortwave infrared
Published: 4/1/2015
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, David W Allen, Benjamin K Tsai, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: This paper describes the establishment and application of the 0/45 reflectance factor scale in the shortwave infrared (SWIR) from 1100 nm to 2500 nm. Design, characterization, and the demonstration of a 4-stage, extended indium-gallium-arsenide radi ...

5. 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 ...

6. 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 ...

7. National Institute of Standards and Technology measurement service of the optical properties of biomedical phantoms: Current status
Published: 3/24/2016
Authors: Paul Lemaillet, Catherine C Cooksey, Zachary H Levine, Adam L Pintar, Jeeseong Hwang, David W Allen
Abstract: The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) has maintained scales of reflectance and transmittance over several decades. Those scales are primarily intended for the regular transmittance, mirrors, and solid surface scattering diffusers ...

8. 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 ...

9. Report on the NIST workshop of December 10, 2009: calibration strategies for bridging possible climate data gaps
Published: 8/12/2010
Authors: Raju Vsnu Datla, Joseph Paul Rice, Catherine C Cooksey, Kurtis J Thome, Robert Barnes, Changyong Cao
Abstract: A one day workshop was held on December 10, 2009 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology to address the issue of data gaps in the time series of satellite measurements. Such gaps can occur due to launch delay or failure, or inconsisten ...

10. SPIE 9639-49 Creation and Validation of Spectralon BRDF Targets & Standards
Published: 10/12/2015
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, Gael Obein, Georgi T Georgiev, Christopher Durell, Dan Scharpf, Greg McKee, Michelle L'Heureux
Abstract: Spectralon is an extremely stable, near-perfect lambertian reflecting diffuser and calibration standard material that has been used by national labs, space, aerospace and commercial sectors for over two decades. New uncertainty targets of 2% on-orb ...
