21. Spectral responsivity based calibration of photometer and colorimeter standards
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 6/19/2013
Author: George P Eppeldauer
Abstract: Several new generation transfer- and working-standard illuminance meters and tristimulus colorimeters have been developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to measure all kinds of light sources with low uncertainty. The spe ...

22. 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 ...

23. Standoff passive video imaging at 350 GHz with 251 superconducting detectors
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 6/20/2014
Authors: Daniel T Becker, James A Beall, Hsiao-Mei Cho, Gene C Hilton, Nicholas G Paulter Jr, Carl D Reintsema, Robert E Schwall, Cale Gentry, Ilya Smirnov, Peter Ade, W D Duncan, Mark Halpern, Carole Tucker
Abstract: Millimeter wavelength radiation holds promise for detection of security threats at a distance, including suicide bomb belts and maritime threats in poor weather. The high sensitivity of superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) detectors makes the ...

25. 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 ...

26. 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 ...
