1. Angle Metrology Using AAMACS and Two Small-Angle Measurement Systems
Published: 11/28/2003
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr., M Amer, Bryon S. Faust, Jay H Zimmerman
Abstract: The highest accuracy method for angle measurement employed at NIST(National Institute of Standards and Technology) makes use of an automated stack of three indexing tables-- our Advanced Automated Master Angle Calibration System (AAMACS)-- in conjunc ...

2. Index of Refraction of Air
Published: 2/16/2001
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr., Jay H Zimmerman
Abstract: These Web pages are intended primarily as a computational tool that can be used to calculate the refractive index of air for a given wavelength of light and given atmospheric conditions (air temperature, pressure, and humidity). The calculations are ...

3. The NIST Gage Block Calibration Software System User's Manual
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6387
Published: 1/1/2000
Author: Jay H Zimmerman
Abstract: The NIST Gage Block Calibration Software System is a complete calibration system with custom integrated software to calibrate and measurehigh-precision quality gage blocks as individual blocks or sets, both English and metric.  The calibration s ...

4. Uncertainties in Small-Angle Measurement Systems Used to Calibrate Angle Artifacts
Published: 5/1/2004
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr., M Amer, Bryon S. Faust, Jay H Zimmerman
Abstract: We have studied a number of effects that can give rise to errors in small-angle measurement systems when they are used to calibrate artifacts such as optical polygons. Of these sources of uncertainty, the most difficult to quantify are errors associa ...
