1. A 350-GHz high-resolution high-sensitivity passive video imaging system
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 4/27/2010
Authors: Daniel Thomas Becker, James A Beall, Hsiao-Mei Cho, William Duncan, Kent D Irwin, Gene C Hilton, Robert Daniel Horansky, Peter Joseph Lowell, Michael David Niemack, Nicholas G Paulter Jr, Carl D Reintsema, Francis Joseph Schima, Robert E Schwall, Ki W. Yoon, Peter Ade, Carole Tucker, Simon Dicker, Mark Halpern
Abstract: We are developing a 350 GHz cryogenic passive video imaging system. This demonstration system uses 800 photon-noise-limited superconducting transition edge sensor bolometers. It will image a 1 m x 1 m area at a standoff distance of 16 m to a resoluti ...

2. A microfabricated photonic magnetometer
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 6/14/2009
Authors: Jan Preusser, Svenja A Knappe, Vladislav Gerginov, John E Kitching
Abstract: A system for sensing magnetic fields is proposed, composed of an array of passive microfabricated alkali atom sensor heads coupled to a control unit using only optical interconnects. The optical coupling can be achieved by either free-space transmiss ...

3. Absolute Flux Calibration of Stars; Calibration of the Reference Telescope
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 6/2/2009
Authors: Allan W. Smith, John Taylor Woodward IV, Colleen Alana Jenkins, Steven W Brown, Keith R Lykke
Abstract: Absolute stellar photometry is based on 1970s terrestrial measurements of the star Vega with instruments calibrated using the Planckian radiance from a Cu fixed-point blackbody. Significant advances in absolute radiometry have been made in the last 3 ...

4. Characterization of Two Spectrmeters in Support of the Landsat Data Continuity Mission
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 8/27/2010
Authors: Bettye C Johnson, Robert D. Saunders, Zhigang Li, Abra Fein, Lawrence Ong, Milton Hom, Robert Barnes, B L Markham
Abstract: The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) project at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) is supervising the manufacture and calibration of the Operational Land Imager (OLI) satellite instrument ...

5. Circular Polarization in Scattered Light as a Possible Biomarker
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 3/2/2009
Authors: Thomas Avery Germer, William Sparks, James H. Hough, Ludmilla Kolokolova, Feng Chen, Shiladitya DasSarma, Priya DasSarma, Frank Robb, Nadine Manset, Neill Reid, F. D. Macchetto, William Martin
Abstract: Biological molecules exhibit homochirality and are optically active. Therefore, it is possible that the scattering of light by biological molecules might result in a macroscopic signature in the form of circular polarization. If this is the case, the ...

6. Comparison of Microwave Black-Body Target Radiometric Measurements
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 7/30/2010
Authors: David K Walker, Dazhen Gu, Katherine MacReynolds, Randy Direen, James Paul Randa, Amanda Cox, Derek Anderson Houtz, Robert L Billinger
Abstract: Accurate characterization of the brightness temperature (T_B) of black-body targets used for calibrating microwave remote-sensing radiometers includes many inputs: antenna pattern and loss, target temperature, target emissivity, mechanical alignment, ...

7. Downwelling Surface Spectral Irradiance Measurements with the Marine Optical BuoY
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 12/31/2008
Authors: Bettye C Johnson, M Feinholz, S Flora, M Yarbrough, Terrance Houlihan, D Peters, Dennis Clark
Abstract: The Marine Optical BuoY (MOBY), off the coast of Lanai, Hawaii, has made in situ, in-water up-welling spectral radiance and downwelling surface spectral irradiance measurements since July 1997. The MOBY observatory concept was developed and implemen ...

8. Experimental Line Parameters of the Oxygen A-Band Using Frequency-Stabilized Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 1/1/2008
Authors: D J Robichaud, Joseph Terence Hodges, Linda R. Brown, D Lisak, Piotr Maslowski, Charles E Miller
Abstract: Line intensities, self- and air-broadened linewidths, pressure-induced shifts, and collisional narrowing coefficients were measured from 18 <= J' <= 32 in the P branch of the O2 A-band (12,975 13,055 cm^(-1)). Spectra were recorded using the freque ...

9. High- Resolution Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy Measurements of Blended H^d2^0 Transitions
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 1/1/0007
Authors: D Lisak, Joseph Terence Hodges
Abstract: We probed four closely spaced rovibrational water vapor absorption transitions near wavenumber = 7100 cm(^-1) using frequency-stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy. Room-temperature spectra were acquired for pure water vapor in the Doppler limit a ...
