1. 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 ...

2. 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 ...

3. 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 ...

4. Sensor Calibration and Characterization to Meet Climate Monitoring Requirements
Published: 4/24/2014
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, Gerald T Fraser, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: The challenge of detecting small changes in the Earth's climate system over decadal and longer time scales places stringent requirements on environmental monitoring systems. Sensors must be well calibrated and maintain their calibration in challengin ...

5. 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 ...

6. 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 ...

8. 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 ...
