71. Measurement Standards for Optically Active Coatings to Improve Shipboard Tank Preservation
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 6/18/2009
Authors: Maria E Nadal, Carl C Miller, Richard Harold, Paul Gossen
Abstract: The cost of corrosion control to the Department of Defense (DOD) is estimated to be $20B/yr. Eliminating coating defects during the coating application job is the key to extending coating service life. Fluorescent coatings containing additives that ...

72. CCPR-S1 Supplementary Comparison for Spectral Radiance in the range of 220 nm to 2500 nm
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 6/2/2009
Authors: Boris Khlevnoy, Victor Sapritsky, Bernard Rougie, Charles E Gibson, Howard W Yoon, Arnold A. Gaertner, Dieter Taubert, Juergen Hartmann
Abstract: In 1997, the Consultative Committee for Photometry and Radiometry (CCPR) initiated a supplementary comparison of spectral radiance in the wavelength range from 220 nm to 2500 nm (CCPR S1) using tungsten -strip filament lamps as transfer standards. Fi ...

73. Measurement of the ultraviolet-induced fluorescence yield from integrating spheres
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 6/2/2009
Authors: Ping-Shine Shaw, Uwe Arp, Keith R Lykke
Abstract: We report theory and measurements of a simple and absolute technique for the determination of the total emitted spectral fluorescence yield inside an integrating sphere from the sphere coating under irradiation with a monochromatic beam. This techniq ...

74. DMD diffraction measurements to support design of projectors for test and evaluation of multispectral and hyperspectral imaging sensors
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 6/1/2009
Authors: Joseph Paul Rice, Jorge Enrique Neira, Michael Kehoe, Rand Swanson
Abstract: We describe our use of Digital Micromirror Devices (DMDs) for the performance testing, characterization, calibration, and system-level data product validation of multispectral and hyperspectral imaging sensors. We have developed a visible Hyperspectr ...

75. Rapid and precise absolute distance measurements at long range
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 6/1/2009
Authors: Ian R Coddington, William C Swann, Ljerka Nenadovic, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: The ability to determine absolute distance to an object is one of the most basic measurements of remote sensing. High precision ranging has important applications in both large-scale manufacturing and in future tight formation-flying satellite missio ...

76. Illuminance responsivity calibration of reference photometers at the NIST SIRCUS and SCF facilities
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 5/29/2009
Authors: George P Eppeldauer, Carl C Miller, Thomas C Larason, Yoshihiro Ohno
Abstract: The illuminance responsivities of two transfer standard photometers have been directly determined from their spectral responsivity calibrations at two different calibration facilities of NIST. The main characteristics of the two photometers, and thei ...

77. Time and Frequency-Domain Spectroscopy with Dual Frequency Combs
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 5/28/2009
Authors: Nathan Reynolds Newbury, Ian R Coddington, William C Swann
Abstract: High-resolution spectroscopic measurements of the amplitude and phase spectra from a gas sample can be acquired by use of dual frequency combs. Here we discuss the corresponding gas signature in the time domain.

78. Absolute Ranging Using Frequency Combs
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 5/25/2009
Authors: William C Swann, Ian R Coddington, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: We present a technique for measuring absolute range that uses two mismatched frequency combs to measure distance over 1.5 m range with 10 nm level statistical uncertainty.

79. Vibration immune fiber-laser frequency comb based on a polarization-maintaining figure-eight laser
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 5/20/2009
Authors: Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, Esther Baumann, Jeffrey W. Nicholson, William C Swann, Ian R Coddington, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: A frequency comb is phase-locked to a cw laser with an electro-optic-modulator providing 1.6 MHz feedback bandwidth. Residual phase noise is as low as -94 dBc/Hz, and the comb remained locked under mechanical vibration of up to 1.9 g.

80. Quantum radiometry
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 5/2/2009
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We review radiometric techniques that take advantage of photon counting and stem from the quantum laws of nature. We present a brief history of metrological experiments and review the current state of experimental quantum radiometry.
