1. Principles of Optical Radiometry and Measurement Uncertainty
Published: 11/27/2014
Authors: Bettye C Johnson, Howard W Yoon, Joseph Paul Rice, Albert C Parr
Abstract: The fundamental concepts of optical radiometry are developed from basic principles, with detailed explanations for radiance, irradiance, and reflectance. Examples of radiometric standards, in particular radiometers and reference sources are given, an ...

2. The use of filtered photodetectors for radiance measurement
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 116.018
Published: 10/31/2010
Authors: Albert C Parr, Bettye C Johnson
Abstract: A methodology for using a calibrated filter radiometer to measure and monitor the spectral radiance of calibration sources is described. An example using a calibration sphere used by NIST for its remote sensing program is presented.

3. Once is Enough in Radiometric Calibrations
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 2/1/2007
Authors: Gerald T Fraser, Charles E Gibson, Howard W Yoon, Albert C Parr
Abstract: The successful development of an Optical Technology Division quality system for optical radiation measurement services has provided the opportunity to reconsider the existing calibration procedures to improve quality and reduce costs. We have institu ...

4. Synchrotron Radiation Based Irradiance Calibration From 200 nm to 400 nm at SURF III
Published: 1/1/2007
Authors: Uwe Arp, Charles E Gibson, Keith R. Lykke, Albert C Parr, Robert D. Saunders, D J Shin, Ping-Shine Shaw, Zhigang Li, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: A new facility for measuring source irradiance was commissioned recently at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The facility uses the calculable radiation from the Synchrotron Ultraviolet Radiation Facility (SURF III) as the pr ...

5. A Tale About the First Weights and Measures Intercomparison in the United States in 1832
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 4/1/2006
Author: Albert C Parr
Abstract: In preparation for the Hassler memorial tablet dedication in the NIST Administration Building lobby in December of 2004, I learned that Ferdinand Rudolf Hassler had carried out the first systematic study of weights and measures in the United States. ...

6. Response to comments on Statistical analysis of CIPM key comparisons based on the ISO Guide
Published: 2/15/2005
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, Raju Vsnu Datla, Albert C Parr

7. Appendix A; Example: Calibration of a Cryogenic Blackbody
Published: 1/22/2005
Authors: Raju Vsnu Datla, Eric L Shirley, Albert C Parr
Abstract: This manuscript is intended to be an Appendix in a book on radiometry, The Practice of Optical Radiometry. The Appendix is to provide a real example of a blackbody calibration, in order to demonstrate the statistical analysis of data. The role of d ...

8. NIST Response to the 7th CORM Report: Pressing Problems and Projected National Needs in Optical Radiation Measurement
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7194
Published: 1/17/2005
Authors: Albert C Parr, Gerald T Fraser, Yoshihiro Ohno
Abstract: The Council for Optical Radiation Measurements (CORM) issues periodic reports relevant to the mission of the Optical Technology Division of the Physics Laboratory. The present document summarizes NIST s response to the CORM Seventh Report issued in ...
