11. Metrology for Lab-on-a-Chip Final-Product Devices
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 5/12/2013
Authors: Darwin R Reyes-Hernandez, Michael W Halter, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: New metrology tools to measure the critical parameters of internal structures in lab on a chip devices are greatly needed in order to develop standard tests for this technology. Here we present a method that combines a custom made optical coherence ...

12. Random testing reveals excessive power in commercial laser pointers
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 5/1/2013
Authors: Joshua Aram Hadler, Edna L Tobares, Marla L Dowell
Abstract: In random testing of 122 commercial laser pointers, we observed that 89.7 % of green pointers and 44.4 % of red pointers were not in compliance with the Code of Federal Regulations, producing laser power in excess of the Accessible Emission Limit at ...

13. Standardization of Broadband UV Measurements
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 1/1/2013
Author: George P Eppeldauer
Abstract: The CIE standardized rectangular-shape UV response functions can be realized only with large spectral mismatch errors. The spectral power-distribution of UV sources is not standardized. Accordingly, the readings of different types of UV meters, even ...

14. Performance of the NIST goniometer with a broad-band source and multichannel CCD based spectrometer
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 9/20/2012
Authors: Vyacheslav B Podobedov, Maria E Nadal, Carl C Miller

15. 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 ...

16. Matrix-based color measurement corrections of tristimulus colorimeters
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 4/20/2012
Authors: George P Eppeldauer, Z. T. Kosztyan, J. D. Schanda
Abstract: For image taking colorimetry the tristimulus technique is still the best practical method to keep the measurement time within reasonable limits. However, the achievable color measurement uncertainties for special sources can be significant because of ...

17. Comparison of laser-based and monochromator-based thermodynamic temperature measurements
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 3/19/2012
Authors: George P Eppeldauer, Howard W Yoon, Jorge Enrique Neira, Vladimir Khromchenko, Charles E Gibson, Allan W. Smith
Abstract: In this work, we describe the comparisons between the laser-based and monochromator-based radiance responsivity calibrations of a radiation thermometer. The spectral selection of the radiation thermometer is performed using a photopic-response fi ...

18. Hyperspectral Imaging and Analysis of Single Erythrocytes
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 8/12/2011
Authors: Ji Y. Lee, Matthew Lawrence Clarke, Fuyuki Tokumasu, John F. Lesoine, David W Allen, Robert C. Chang, Maritoni Abatayo Litorja, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: We report a hyperspectral imaging and analysis technique to resolve unique physico-chemical characteristics of subcellular substances in single erythrocytes. We constructed a microscope system installed with a spectral light engine capable of contr ...

19. 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. ...

20. 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 ...
