Effect of Teflon(R) Transmittance on Sensitivity of Thermoluminescence Dosimeter Cards

May 20, 2020
Vyacheslav B. Podobedov, Carl C. Miller, Alexander Romanyukha, Andrew Hoy
Thermoluminescence dosimeter cards purchased by the United States Navy in recent years have different radiation sensitivities, e.g. they exhibit a different amount of light per dose unit. Presented tests indicate that the optical transparency of the Teflon

Low-NEP pyroelectric detectors for calibration of UV and IR sources and detectors

September 5, 2017
George P. Eppeldauer, Vyacheslav B. Podobedov, Leonard Hanssen, P. Yvonne Barnes
Pyroelectric radiometers with spectrally constant response have been developed at NIST with the cooperation of a few detector manufacturers. The new devices have noise-equivalent-power (NEP) values less than 1 nW/Hz^1/2 sufficiently low for use at the

Calibration of night vision goggles: an SI-units-based measurement technique

July 11, 2017
Vyacheslav B. Podobedov, George P. Eppeldauer, Thomas C. Larason
A new night vision goggles (NVG) gain definition for the calibration process is proposed and evaluated. This definition is based on the radiance measurements at the input and output of the NVG. In contrast to the old definition which uses a non-

Calibration of spectral responsivity of IR detectors in the range from 0.6 mm to 24 mm

June 15, 2017
Vyacheslav B. Podobedov, George P. Eppeldauer, Leonard M. Hanssen, Thomas C. Larason
We report the upgraded performance of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) facility for spectral responsivity calibrations of infrared (IR) detectors in both radiant power and irradiance measurement modes. The extension of the

Broadband Radiometric LED Measurements

September 6, 2016
George P. Eppeldauer, P. Yvonne Barnes, Howard W. Yoon, Leonard Hanssen, Vyacheslav B. Podobedov, Robert E. Vest, Uwe Arp, C Cameron Miller
At present, broadband radiometric measurements of LEDs with uniform and low-uncertainty results are not available. Currently, either spectral radiometric measurements or broadband photometric LED measurements are used. The broadband photometric

New night vision goggle gain definition

May 12, 2015
Vyacheslav B. Podobedov, George P. Eppeldauer, Thomas C. Larason
A new definition is proposed for the calibration of Night Vision Goggle (NVG) gains. This definition is based on the measurement of radiometric input and output quantities of the NVG. While the old definition used the “equivalent fL” which is a non SI

PV-MCT working standard radiometer

April 24, 2012
George P. Eppeldauer, Vyacheslav B. Podobedov
Sensitive infrared working-standard detectors with large active area are needed to extend the signal dynamic range of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) pyroelectric transfer-standards used for infrared spectral power responsivity

Infrared detector calibrations

March 22, 2012
George P. Eppeldauer, Vyacheslav B. Podobedov
An InSb working standard radiometer, first calibrated at NIST in 1999 against a cryogenic bolometer, was recently calibrated against a newly developed low-NEP pyroelectric transfer standard detector. The pyroelectric transfer standard, which can operate at

Submillimeter and THz Detection of Chemical-Warfare Agents in Air

December 31, 2004
Vyacheslav B. Podobedov, R J. Lavrich, T M. Korter, Gerald T. Fraser, David F. Plusquellic, A C. Samuels
Experimental measurements and theoretical calculations were performed to assess the potential for using continuous-wave submillimeter and THz (far-infrared) linear-absorption spectroscopies to detect chemical-warfare agents in air at ambient temperatures
