1. A Careful Consideration of the Calibration Concept
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 3/1/2001
Authors: Steven David Phillips, William Tyler Estler, Theodore D Doiron, K Eberhardt, M Levenson
Abstract: This paper is a detailed discussion of the technical aspects of the calibration process with emphasis on the definition of the measurand, the conditions under which the calibration results are valid, and the subsequent use of the calibration results ...

3. A Constrained Monte Carlo Simulation Method for the Calculation of CMM Measurement Uncertainty
Published: 1/1/1999
Authors: Steven David Phillips, Bruce R. Borchardt, Daniel S Sawyer, William Tyler Estler, K Eberhardt, M Levenson, Marjorie A McClain, Ted Hopp
Abstract: We describe a Monte Carlo simulation technique where known information about a metrology system is employed as a constraint to distinguish the errors associated with the instrument under consideration from the set of all possible instrument errors. T ...

4. A Distribution-Independent Bound on the Level of Confidence in the Result of a Measurement
Published: 9/1/1997
Author: William Tyler Estler
Abstract: The Bienaym?-Chebyshev Inequality provides a quantitative bound on the level of confidence of a measurement with known combined standard uncertainty and assumed coverage factor. The result is independent of the detailed nature of the probability dist ...

5. A Laser Tracker Calibration System
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: Daniel S Sawyer, Bruce R. Borchardt, Steven David Phillips, Charles Fronczek, William Tyler Estler
Abstract: We describe a laser tracker calibration system developed for frameless coordinate metrology systems. The system employs a laser rail to provide an 'in situ' calibrated length standard that is used to test a tracker in several different configurations ...

6. ASME B89.4.19 Performance Evaluation Tests and Geometric Misalignments in Laser Trackers
Published: 1/30/2009
Authors: Balasubramanian Muralikrishnan, Daniel S Sawyer, Christopher J Blackburn, Steven David Phillips, Bruce R. Borchardt, William Tyler Estler
Abstract: Small and unintended offsets, tilts, and eccentricity of the mechanical and optical components in laser trackers introduce systematic errors in the measured spherical coordinates (angles and range readings), and possibly in the calculated lengths of ...

7. Angle Metrology of Dispersion Prisms
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: William Tyler Estler, Y H Queen, Christopher J. Evans

8. Calculation of Measurement Uncertainty Using Prior Information
Published: 11/1/1998
Authors: Steven David Phillips, William Tyler Estler
Abstract: We describe the use of Bayesian inference to include prior information about the value of the measurand in the calculation of measurement uncertainty. Typical examples show this can, in effect, reduce the expanded uncertainty by up to 85 %. The ...

9. Displacement Uncertainty in Interferometric Radius Measurements
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Tony L Schmitz, Christopher J. Evans, Angela Davies, William Tyler Estler
Abstract: Interferometric radius measurements may be completed using a radius bench, where radius is defined as the displacement between the confocal and cat?s eye nulls (identified using a figure measuring interferometer). Measurements of a Zerodur sphere hav ...
