11. The Pan-STARRS1 Photometric System
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 5/10/2012
Authors: J. L. Tonry, Christopher W Stubbs, Keith R Lykke, Peter Doherty, I. S. Shivvers, W. S. Burgett, K. C. Chambers, K. W Hodapp, N. Kaiser, R -P Kudritzki, E. A. Magnier, J. S, Morgan, P. A. Price, R. J. Wainscoat
Abstract: The Pan-STARRS1 survey is collecting multi-epoch, multi-color observations of the sky north of declination −30 to unprecedented depths. These data are being photometrically and astrometrically calibrated and will serve as a reference for man ...

13. An example crossover experiment for testing new vicarious calibration techniques for satellite ocean color radiometry
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 10/1/2010
Authors: Kenneth Voss, Scott McLean, Stephanie J Flora, Michael Feinholz, Mark A. Yarbrough, Charles Trees, Mike Twardowski, Dennis Clark, Marlon Lewis, Bettye C Johnson
Abstract: Vicarious calibration of ocean color satellites involves accurate surface measurements of water-leaving radiance to update and improve the system calibration of ocean color satellite sensors. An experiment was performed to compare a free-fall techn ...

14. Mid-IR frequency comb upconversion spectroscopy
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 5/16/2010
Authors: Todd Johnson, Scott A Diddams
Abstract: We present a mid-infrared frequency comb generated via differency frequency mixing of a Yb femtosecond fiber laser. After passing through a methane gas sample, the MIR comb is upconverted and dispersed onto a CCD for detection.

15. Femtosecond frequency comb measurement of absolute frequencies and hyperfine coupling constants in cesium vapor
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 4/29/2010
Authors: Jason Stalnaker, Vela Mbele, Vladislav Gerginov, Tara Michele Fortier, Scott A Diddams, Leo Hollberg, C E Tanner
Abstract: We report measurements of absolute transition frequencies and hyperfine coupling constants for the 8S1/2 , 9S1/2 , 7D3/2 , and 7D5/2 states in 133 Cs vapor. The stepwise excitation through either the 6P1/2 or 6P3/2 intermediate state is perform ...

16. Strategic Plan 2010
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 4/21/2010
Author: Gerald T Fraser
Abstract: The Optical Technology Division s 2010 Strategic Plan defines the Mission, Vision, and Strategic Elements for the Division. The Strategic Elements consist of Optical Radiation Standards, Optical Measurement Methods, and Optical Measurement Services. ...

17. Infrared time domain spectroscopy with synchronized frequency combs
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 1/29/2010
Authors: Nathan Reynolds Newbury, Ian R Coddington, William C Swann
Abstract: We describe a frequency-comb based system for time-domain spectroscopy in the near infrared. Our configuration implements synchronous, repetitive sampling of the time domain signature for real-time coherent signal averaging and improved signal-to-noi ...

18. Extension of the NIST tristimulus colorimeter for solid-state light source measurements
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 5/29/2009
Authors: George P Eppeldauer, Carl C Miller, Thomas C Larason, Yoshihiro Ohno
Abstract: In order to obtain improved color measurement uncertainties for solid state light (SSL) sources, the second generation tristimulus colorimeter of NIST has been extended with a fifth channel to perform efficient matrix corrections for the spectral mis ...

19. A deep-UV optical frequency comb at 205 nm
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 5/25/2009
Authors: Scott A Diddams, E Peters, P Fendel, S Reinhardt, T W Hansch, T Udem
Abstract: By frequency quadrupling a picosecond pulse train from a Ti:sapphire laser at 820 nm we generate a frequency comb at 205 nm with nearly bandwidth-limited pulses. The nonlinear frequency conversion is accomplished by two successive frequency doubling ...

20. Ultraviolet degradation study of photomultiplier tubes at SURF III
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 5/8/2009
Authors: Ping-Shine Shaw, Lindsay Hum, Zhigang Li, Keith R Lykke, Michael Bishop
Abstract: Photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) are used in biological detection systems in order to detect the presence of biological warfare agents. To ensure proper operation of these biological detection systems, the performance of PMTs must be characterized in ter ...
