241. Modulation Transfer Function Measurement Method for Electrically-Addressed Spatial Light Modulators
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/1/2001
Authors: Patrick J Grother, D P Casasent
Abstract: The modulation transfer function (MTF) using amplitude modulation (mA) data is a vital coherent optical performance measure for a spatial light modulator (SLM). A new image plane MTFA (amplitude MTF) measurement method is presented for electrically- ...

242. Latent Fingerprint Training With NIST Special Database 27 and Universal Latent Workstation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6799
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/1/2001
Author: Michael D Garris
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology, in collaboration with the FBI, has published NIST Special Database 27 (SD27) Fingerprint Minutiae from Latent and Matching Tenprint Images. This CD-ROM collection contains images of 258 latent crime ...

243. Meta-Analysis of Face Recognition Algorithms
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6719
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/1/2001
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, E M Newton
Abstract: To obtain a quantitative assessment of the state of automatic face recognition, we performed a meta-analysis of performance results of face recognition algorithms in the literature. The analysis was conducted on 24 papers that report identification ...

244. Optical Path Difference Measurement Techniques for SLMs
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/1/2001
Authors: Patrick J Grother, D P Casasent
Abstract: A simple measurement method to obtain 2-D spatial point-by-point optical path difference (OPD) data for spatial light modulators (SLMs) is described. A simple imaging system is used that allows measurements of all SLM parameters on the same laborato ...

245. Computational and Performance Aspects of PCA-Based Face Recognition Algorithms
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6486
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/1/2001
Authors: H Moon, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: Principal component analysis (PCA) based algorithms form the basis of numerous algorithms and studies in the psychological and algorithmic face recognition literature. PCA is a statistical technique and its incorporation into a face recognition algo ...

246. Composite Filter for VanderLugt Correlator
Report Number: 6291
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 2/4/1999
Authors: Craig I Watson, Charles L. Wilson, E G. Paek, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: This paper will examines the use of composite filters for improving the effectiveness of a Vanderlugt correlator when used for fingerprint identification. A digital simulation, which accounts for noise sources in the optical setup, is used to design ...

247. Support Vector Machines Applied to Face Recognition
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6241
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/1/1998
Author: P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: Face recognition is a K class problem, where K is the number of known individuals; and support vector machines (SVMs) are a binary classification method. By reformulating the face recognition problem and re-interpreting the output of the SVM classif ...

248. High Speed Temporal Characterization and Visualization of Spatial Light Modulators and Flat Panel Displays
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/1/1998
Authors: E G. Paek, Charles L. Wilson, John W. Roberts, Craig I Watson
Abstract: An apparatus that can characterize and visualize temporal dynamics of spatial light modulators (SLM) or flat panel displays is constructed and evaluated using a commercially available spatial light modulator as a test subject. The apparatus is base ...

249. Optical Metrology for Industrialization of Optical Information Processing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6060
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/1/1997
Authors: D P Casasent, Charles L. Wilson

250. Combined Optical and Neural Network Fingerprint Matching
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5955
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/1/1997
Authors: Charles L. Wilson, Craig I Watson, E G. Paek
