11. A Users' Guide to NIST SRM 2084: CMM Probe Performance Standards
Published: 6/1/1994
Authors: Gregory W Caskey, Steven David Phillips, Bruce R. Borchardt, David E Ward, Daniel S Sawyer
Abstract: Standard Reference Materials (SRMs) as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are well-characterized materials, produced in quantity and certified for one or more physical or chemical properties. They are used to assure ...

12. 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 ...

13. Application of the ASME/ANSI B89.1.12M Standard to an Articulating Arm Coordinate Measuring Machine
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5562(R)
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: Gregory W Caskey, Steven David Phillips, Bruce R. Borchardt, H Eaton, J Smith
Abstract: Abstract not available.

14. Assessing Ranging Errors as a Function of Azimuth in Laser Trackers and Tracers
Published: 4/18/2013
Authors: Balasubramanian Muralikrishnan, Vincent D Lee, Christopher J. Blackburn, Daniel S Sawyer, Steven David Phillips, Wei Ren, Ben Hughes
Abstract: Tilt and radial error motion of a laser tracker head as it spins about the two axes results in small but measurable ranging and angle errors. The laser tracer, on the other hand, measures range with respect to the center of a high quality stationary ...

15. Assessment of Conformity, Decision Rules and Risk Analysis
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: Steven David Phillips, Michael Krystek
Abstract: Measurement uncertainty has important economic consequences for calibration and inspection activities. In calibration reports, the magnitude of the uncertainty is often taken as an indication of the quality of the laboratory. In industrial measurem ...

16. 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 ...

17. Challenges to the use of the GUM
Published: 7/15/2015
Author: Steven David Phillips
Abstract: Presentation at the BIPM on (1) Issues with the uncertainty evaluation associated with the calibration of indicating instruments; and (2) the growing problem with ,outlier rejectionŠ in measurements with measurands defined by ,extreme valuesŠ

18. Choosing test positions for laser tracker evaluation and future Standards development
Published: 7/15/2010
Authors: Balasubramanian Muralikrishnan, Daniel S Sawyer, Christopher J. Blackburn, Steven David Phillips, Craig M Shakarji, Ed Morse, Robert Bridges
Abstract: A working group within the ISO TC 213 committee is developing a draft document [11] for evaluating the performance of laser trackers. The ASME B89.4.19 Standard [1] and the draft VDI/VDE 2617 part 10 [2] describe some useful tests that are incorporat ...

19. Corrections for Wavelength Variations in Precision Interferometric Displacement Measurements
Published: 9/1/1996
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr., Steven David Phillips, G Mandolfo
Abstract: Precision interferometric displacement measurements require deadpath corrections to account for variations in wavelength during the course of the measurement. This paper discusses common errors in applying deadpath corrections and describes the corre ...

20. Design and Testing of a One Dimensional Measuring Machine for Determining the Length of Ball Bars
Published: 1/1/2001
Authors: J C Ziegert, D Rea, Steven David Phillips, Bruce R. Borchardt
Abstract: A new machine for the rapid calibration of ball bars has been built.  By means of comparisons to CMM measurements, it has been shown to work as an accurate special purpose machine for the calibration of ball bar lengths.
