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 ...

5. 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 ...

6. 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 ...

9. Terahertz spectroscopy of aqueous L-Proline in reverse micelles
Published: 11/21/2008
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, Edwin J Heilweil, Benjamin Greer
Abstract: A new method for obtaining room temperature terahertz (THz) absorption spectra of aqueous-phase biomolecules in the frequency range 1 THz to 21 THz (35 cm-1 to 700 cm-1) is reported. The spectrum for L-Proline was acquired by solvating the amino ac ...

10. 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 ...
