41. Ultra-Precision Linear Motion Metrology of a Commerically Available Linear Translation Stage
Topic: Metrology
Published: 11/18/2011
Authors: Ronnie R. Fesperman Jr., M Alkan Donmez, Shawn P Moylan
Abstract: Many new compact ultra-precision linear translation stages with exceptionally long ranges of motion on the order of tens of millimeters and positioning resolutions on the order of a nanometer are finding their way into emerging nanotechnologies. Thi ...

42. NON-CONTACT DIMENSIONAL MEASUREMENTS OF BIPOLAR FUEL CELL PLATES
Topic: Metrology
Published: 11/15/2011
Authors: Balasubramanian Muralikrishnan, Wei Ren, Dennis S Everett, Eric S Stanfield, Theodore D Doiron
Abstract: Non-contact dimensional measurement of fuel cell plates is critical to the eventual rapid manufacture by supporting in-process measurement and control. This need has been identified by the Department of Energy‰s Hydrogen Program, and by numerous manu ...

45. Methodology for imaging of nano-to-microscale water condensation dynamics on complex nanostructures
Topic: Metrology
Published: 6/11/2011
Authors: Konrad Rykaczewski, John Henry j Scott
Abstract: By transferring of a small part of a macroscale sample to a novel thermally insulated sample platform we are able to mitigate flooding and electron heating problems typically associated with Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy imaging of water ...

46. Mixed Pallet Stacking: An Overview and Summary of the 2010 PerMIS Special Session
Topic: Metrology
Published: 2/4/2011
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Henrik I. Christensen, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Pushkar Kolhe, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: Stacking boxes of various sizes and contents on pallets (i.e. making mixed pallets) is a primary method of preparing goods for shipment from a warehouse to a store or other distant site. A special session of the 2010 PERMIS workshop was held to exami ...

50. Performance Assessment of Face Recognition Using Super-Resolution
Topic: Metrology
Published: 10/25/2010
Authors: Shuowen Hu, Robert Maschal, S. Susan Young, Tsai Hong Hong, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: Recognition rate of face recognition algorithms is dependent on the resolution of the imagery, specifically the number of pixels contained within the face. Using a sequence of frames from low-resolution videos, super-resolution reconstruction can fo ...
