Remote Sensing Group

The group establishes the detector-based scale for radiant power responsivity through cryogenic electrical substitution radiometry, and disseminates the scale to the remote sensing community via radiance and irradiance responsivity through the SIRCUS, hyperspectral imaging, and LBIR facilities. The group also establishes and disseminates measurement scales for optical/infrared properties of materials and performs supporting theoretical analysis.
