Prototype of high accuracy single input phase measurement instrument

August 2, 2022
Nicholas G. Paulter Jr., Ioan Tudosa, Francesco Picariello, Pasquale Daponte, Luca De Vito, Sergio Rapuano
A prototype implementation of a phase measurement method (PMM) for a sine-wave signal delivered at the output port of a generator and its experimental assessment is presented. This PMM is capable of measuring the output phase of a sine-wave signal respect

White-Box Evaluation of Fingerprint Matchers: Robustness to Minutiae Perturbations

January 6, 2021
Steven Grosz, Joshua J. Engelsma, Nicholas G. Paulter Jr., Anil K. Jain
Prevailing evaluations of fingerprint recognition systems have been performed as end-to-end black-box tests of fingerprint identification or authentication accuracy. However, performance of the end-to-end system is subject to errors arising in any of its

A Phase Measurement Method to Guarantee the Traceability of the Calibration System

August 1, 2020
Nicholas G. Paulter Jr., Sergio Rapuano, Pasquale Daponte, Luca De Vito, Francesco Picariello, Ioan Tudosa
In this paper, an innovative phase measurement method of sinusoidal signals is presented and a proof-of-concept implementation is demonstrated. The method allows measuring the phase at the output of a high frequency sinewave signal generator, respect to a

The IEEE TC-10 Standards: Update 2019

February 28, 2020
Nicholas G. Paulter Jr., Sergio Rapuano, Luca De Vito, John R. Jendzurski, W. B. Boyer, S. J. Tilden
There is a global need to standardize the terms and the test and computational methods that are used to describe and/or measure the parameters that characterize and define the performance of devices that generate signals and subsequently measure and

Spherical Test Objects for Hand-held Metal Detector Characterization

September 12, 2018
Nicholas G. Paulter Jr., Donald R. Larson, John A. Ely
Measuring the detection performance of metal detectors (hand-worn, hand-held, and walk-through models) is based on the observation of an alarm indication (light, sound, vibration) given by the metal detector when a threat or test object is present. These

Walk-through Metal Detector Testing and the Need to Emulate Natural Body Motion

July 5, 2018
Nicholas G. Paulter Jr., Donald R. Larson, Nicklaus F. Troje
The effect of motion through the portal of a walk-through metal detector (WTMD) has often been considered to contribute to the uncertainty in detecting threat objects being carried through the WTMD. However, typical metrological testing uses a robotic

Electroshock Weapon Measurements

April 12, 2017
Nicholas G. Paulter Jr., David M. Jenkins, Norimitsu Ichikawa
Electroshock weapons (ESWs) are a commonly used tool in the escalation of force arsenal for law enforcement and the military around the world. ESWs function by providing a high-voltage low-current electrical shock that, when discharged into a live

An Investigation of the Temperature and Strain-Rate Effects on Strain-to-Failure of UHMWPE Fibers

October 18, 2016
Don Jenket II, Amanda L. Forster, Nicholas G. Paulter Jr., Tusit Weerasooriya, Carey A. Gunnarsson, Mohamad Al-Sheikhly
During a ballistic impact, Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibers are subjected to high temperatures and high strain-rates. Their tensile strength increases with increasing strain-rate and decreases with increasing temperature. To

Long term stability of ultra high molar mass polyethylene fibres

September 19, 2016
Amanda L. Forster, Aaron M. Forster, Joannie W. Chin, Sylvain H. Petit, Kai-Li Kang, Nicholas G. Paulter Jr., Kirk D. Rice, Don Jenket II, Mohamad Al-Sheikhly
Abstract. The performance of ultra-high molar mass polyethylene (UHMMPE) fibres for ballistic protection is predicated on the development of a highly aligned molecular structure that allows the polymer to exhibit a superior strength in the axial direction
