1. 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 ...

2. 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 ...

3. 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 ...

4. 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 ...
