Boris Wilthan (Assoc)


Boris Wilthan is currently working on the design, implementation and enhancement of data capture procedures for a database on thermophysical properties of metals and alloys. (, DOI: 10.18434/M32153)

His experimental expertise includes:

  • characterization of high temperature carbon eutectic fixpoints by radiometric methods
  • determination of high temperature thermophysical properties of metals with a microsecond pulse-heating method and differential scanning calorimetry
  • measurement of optical properties (reflectance and emittance) in the visible, near, and mid IR with integrating spheres, FTIR radiance comparison methods, and microsecond laser polarimetry
  • calibration and characterization of filters, detectors, paints,  and coatings in the IR

Detection of Dense, Overlapping, Geometric Objects

Adele P. Peskin, Boris Wilthan, Michael P. Majurski
Using a unique data collection, we are able to study the detection of dense geometric objects in image data where object density, clarity, and size vary. The
