71. My experience as a Commerce Science and Technology Fellow on Capitol Hill
Topic: Statistics
Published: 12/31/2008
Author: Ana I. Aviles
Abstract: How did I age a decade in less than a year? I worked for a Member of Congress and I made the most of my time on Capitol Hill! For ten months I served as primary advisor to Congressman Fortu o (R-PR) on science, space, technology, and telecommunicat ...

72. NIST-Sponsored Interlaboratory Comparison of Polystyrene Molecular Mass Distribution Obtained by Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry: Statistical Analysis
Topic: Statistics
Published: 3/1/2001
Authors: Charles Martin Guttman, S Wetzel, William R. Blair, B M Fanconi, Kathleen M. Flynn, R J Goldschmidt, William E Wallace III, David Lloyd VanderHart
Abstract: Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS) is becoming a new and important technique in synthetic polymer characterization. Yet much is still unknown about the molecular mass distribution (MWD) which ...

73. Neutron Tomography of a Fuel Cell: Statistical Learning Implementation of a Penalized Likelihood Method
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/15/2013
Authors: Kevin J Coakley, Dominic F. (Dominic F.) Vecchia, Daniel S Hussey, David L Jacobson
Abstract: At the NIST Neutron Imaging Facility, we collect neutron projection data for both the dry and wet states of a Proton-Exchange-Membrane (PEM) fuel cell. Transmitted neutrons captured in a scintillator doped with Lithium-6 produce scintillation li ...

74. On Multiple-Method Studies
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/4/2010
Authors: Chih-Ming Wang, Hariharan K Iyer
Abstract: In this paper we review statistical models that describe measurements from a multiple-method study such as in the development of a reference material. We also review requirements for the so-called GUM compliance as this appears to be an important cri ...

75. On Non-Linear Estimation of a Measurand
Topic: Statistics
Published: 11/7/2011
Authors: Chih-Ming Wang, Hariharan K Iyer
Abstract: We consider an estimation problem described in the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM). The problem is concerned with estimating a measurand that is a non-linear function of input quantities. The GUM describes two methods for ...

76. Optimizing Hybrid Metrology through a Consistent Multi-Tool Parameter Set and Uncertainty Model
Topic: Statistics
Published: 4/14/2014
Authors: Richard M Silver, Bryan M Barnes, Nien F Zhang, Hui H. Zhou, Andras Vladar, John S Villarrubia, Regis J Kline, Daniel Franklin Sunday, Alok Vaid
Abstract: There has been significant interest in hybrid metrology as a novel method for reducing overall measurement uncertainty and optimizing measurement throughput (speed) through rigorous combinations of two or more different measurement techniques into a ...

77. Pairwise Alignment of Chromatograms using a Fisher-Rao Metric
Topic: Statistics
Published: 9/2/2014
Authors: William E Wallace III, Anuj Srivastava, Kelly H Telu, Yamil Simon
Abstract: A new approach to aligning chromatograms is introduced and applied to examples of metabolite identification by liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC MS). A square root representation of the chromatogram‰s derivative coupled with a Fisher Rao R ...

78. Performance Measurements for Evaluating Static and Dynamic Multiple Human Detection and Tracking Systems in Unstructured Environments
Topic: Statistics
Published: 6/30/2010
Authors: Bodt Bodt, Richard Camden, Harry A. Scott, Adam S Jacoff, Tsai Hong Hong, Tommy Chang, Richard J Norcross, Anthony J Downs, Ann M Virts
Abstract: The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Robotics Collaborative Technology Alliance (CTA) conducted an assessment and evaluation of multiple algorithms for real-time detection of pedestrians in Laser Detection and Ranging (LADAR) and video sensor data take ...

79. Phase-coded volume holographic gratings for spatial-spectral imaging filters
Topic: Statistics
Published: 2/15/2013
Author: John Lu
Abstract: We present a design of phase contrast filters embedded in a three-dimensional (3D) pupil to form phase-coded volume holographic gratings (VHG) for spatial-spectral imaging. The phase-coded VHG improves image contrast and results in strong filtering p ...

80. Pivotal Methods in the Propagation of Distributions
Topic: Statistics
Published: 4/24/2012
Authors: Chih-Ming Wang, Jan Hannig, Hariharan K Iyer
Abstract: We propose a method for assigning a probability distribution to an input quantity. The distribution is used in the Monte Carlo method for uncertainty evaluation. The proposed method provides an alternative to other methods, such as the principle of m ...
