1. Optical Passive Sensor Calibration for Satellite Remote Sensing and the Legacy of NOAA and NIST Cooperation
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 119.008
Topic: Physics
Published: 6/26/2014
Authors: Raju VSNU Datla , Michael Weinreb, Joseph Paul Rice, Bettye C Johnson, Eric L Shirley, Changyong Cao
Abstract: This paper traces the cooperative effort of the scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for improving the calibration of operational satellite sensors ...

3. Large-area irradiance-mode spectral response measurements of solar cells by a light-emitting-diode- based integrating sphere source
Topic: Physics
Published: 5/30/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Andrew M Shore, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An irradiance-mode absolute differential spectral response measurement system based on a light emitting diode (LED) array is described. The LEDs are coupled to an integrating sphere whose output irradiance is uniform to better than 2 % over an ar ...

4. Time-resolved double-slit interference pattern measurement with entangled photons
Topic: Physics
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Lynden Krister Shalm, Thomas Jennewein, Kevin Resch, Piotr Kolenderski, Carmelo Scarcella, Kelsey D. Johnsen Johnsen, Deny Hamel, Cahterine Holloway, Simone Tisa, Alberto Tosi
Abstract: The double-slit experiment strikingly demonstrates the wave-particle duality of quantum objects. In this famous experiment, particles pass one-by-one through a pair of slits and are detected on a distant screen. A distinct wave-like pattern emerg ...

5. Sensor Calibration and Characterization to Meet Climate Monitoring Requirements
Topic: Physics
Published: 4/24/2014
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, Gerald T Fraser, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: The challenge of detecting small changes in the Earth's climate system over decadal and longer time scales places stringent requirements on environmental monitoring systems. Sensors must be well calibrated and maintain their calibration in challengin ...

6. Preparation of nanocomposite plasmonic films made from cellulose nanocrystals or mesoporous silica decorated with unidirectionally aligned gold nanorods
Topic: Physics
Published: 4/11/2014
Authors: Michael Campbell, Qingkun Liu, Aric Warner Sanders, Julian Evans, Ivan I. Smalyukh
Abstract: Using liquid crystalline self-assembly of cellulose nanocrystals, we achieve long-range alignment of anisotropic metal nanoparticles in colloidal nanocrystal dispersions that are then used to deposit thin structured films with ordering features h ...

7. Dual-polarization-sensitive kinetic inductance detectors for balloon-borne, sub-millimeter polarimetry
Topic: Physics
Published: 3/20/2014
Authors: James A Beall, Daniel T Becker, Justus A Brevik, Hsiao-Mei Cho, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, Dale Li, David P Pappas, Jeffrey Lee Van Lanen, Johannes Hubmayr
Abstract: We are developing arrays of kinetic inductance detectors for sub-millimeter polarimetry that will be deployed on the BLAST balloon-borne instrument. The array is feedhorn-coupled, and each pixel contains two lumped-element kinetic inductance dete ...

8. WWVB Time Signal Broadcast: A New Enhanced Broadcast Format and Multi-Mode Receiver
Topic: Physics
Published: 3/14/2014
Authors: John P Lowe, Yingsi Liang, Oren Eliezer, Dinesh Rajan
Abstract: WWVB is a broadcast station, operated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, that has been broadcasting time information to radio-controlled clocks (RCC) throughout the continental US since 1965. The transmitted information includes t ...

9. WWVB: A Half Century of Delivering Accurate Frequency and Time by Radio
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 119.004
Topic: Physics
Published: 3/12/2014
Authors: Michael A Lombardi, Glenn K Nelson
Abstract: In commemoration of its 50th anniversary of broadcasting from Fort Collins, Colorado, this paper provides a history of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) radio station WWVB. The narrative describes the evolution of the station ...

10. A collapse of the cross-spectral function in phase noise metrology
Topic: Physics
Published: 2/25/2014
Authors: Craig W Nelson, Archita Hati, David Allan Howe
Abstract: Cross-spectral analysis is a mathematical tool for extracting the power spectral density of a correlated signal from two time series in the presence of uncorrelated interfering signals. We demonstrate and explain a set of conditions where the detect ...
