Simon G. Kaplan

Simon Kaplan's research interests include spectrophotometry and radiometry. He has worked on the characterization of optical materials and components in support of UV photolithography and infrared remote sensing applications. Currently he leads the Low Background Infrared (LBIR) project for absolute detector-based irradiance and radiance calibrations in support of missile defense as well as climate monitoring technology.

He was awarded a NIST Bronze Medal in 2013 for contributions to the calibration accuracy of NOAA infrared environmental satellites.
