Characterizing light engine uniformity and its influence on LCD-based vat photopolymerization printing

December 27, 2022
Benjamin Caplins, Callie Higgins, Thomas Kolibaba, Uwe Arp, C Cameron Miller, Dianne L. Poster, Clarence Zarobila, Yuqin Zong, Jason Killgore
Vat photopolymerization (VP) is a rapidly growing category of additive manufacturing. As VP methods mature the expectation is that the quality of printed parts will be highly reproducible. At present, detailed characterization of the light engines used in

Diffuse Visual Transmission Density

August 17, 2022
Clarence Zarobila, Robert E. Vest, Maria E. Nadal
This document, SP250-99 (2022), NIST Measurement Services: Diffuse Visual Transmission Density, describes the instrument used to measure diffuse visual transmission density of both x-ray and photographic film step tablets. These step tablets replace former

NIST Traveling Tunable Laser Projector (TTLP) for UV-Blue Disinfection Dose Determinations

June 21, 2022
Thomas C. Larason, Steven Grantham, Clarence Zarobila, Yuqin Zong, C Cameron Miller, Michael Schuit, Brian Holland, Stewart Wood, Melissa Krause
As COVID-19 was overtaking the world in the spring of 2020, the National Institute of Standards and Technology began collaborating with the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center to study the inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 to different UV and

Disinfection of Respirators with Ultraviolet Radiation

March 25, 2022
Dianne L. Poster, Matthew Hardwick, C Cameron Miller, Michael A. Riley, W. W. Shanaka I. Rodrigo, Andras E. Vladar, John D. Wright, Christopher D. Zangmeister, Clarence Zarobila, Jeremy Starkweather, John Wynne, Jason Yilzarde
Data for interpreting virus inactivation on N95 face filtering respirators (FFRs) by ultraviolet (UV) radiation are important in developing UV strategies for N95 FFR disinfection and reuse for any situation, whether it be everyday practices, contingency

The Irradiance Instrument Subsystem (IRIS) on the Airborne-Lunar Spectral Irradiance (Air-LUSI) Instrument

March 23, 2022
Steven Grantham, Thomas C. Larason, Clarence Zarobila, Stephen Maxwell, John Woodward, Kevin Turpie, S. Andrew Gadsden
The objective of the airborne LUnar Spectral Irradiance (air-LUSI) project is to make low uncertainty, SI-traceable measurements of the lunar spectral irradiance in the visible to near-infrared (VNIR) region from an aircraft above most of the optically

Optical and Mechanical Design of a Telescope for Lunar Spectral Irradiance Measurements from a High-Altitude Aircraft

September 8, 2020
Clarence Zarobila, Steven Grantham, Steven W. Brown, John T. Woodward IV, Stephen Maxwell, Dana R. Defibaugh, Thomas C. Larason, Kevin Turpie
We have designed a non-imaging telescope for measurement of the spectral irradiance of the moon. The telescope was integrated into a wing pod of a NASA ER-2 research aircraft to measure lunar spectral irradiance during flight. The telescope and support

3D printed optical concentrators for LED arrays

July 19, 2020
Behrang H. Hamadani, Jonathan E. Seppala, Clarence J. Zarobila
Additive manufacturing methods based on photopolymerization offer a great potential for fabrication of high quality, highly transparent optical components. One appropriate use of these technologies is related to fabrication of parts that can be used in

Comparison between angularly and spectrally resolved gloss measurements with gloss measurements carried out on a national reference goniometer for gloss calibration

February 22, 2017
Andree R. Charriere, Maria E. Nadal, Clarence Zarobila
The present work consists in developing a procedure which will allow to compare gloss values obtained from an angularly and spectrally resolved Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) measurement and gloss values measured with a national

Design, Developments, and Results from the NIST Additive Manufacturing Metrology Testbed (AMMT)

August 10, 2016
Brandon M. Lane, Sergey Mekhontsev, Steven E. Grantham, Mihaela Vlasea, Justin G. Whiting, Ho Yeung, Jason C. Fox, Clarence J. Zarobila, Jorge E. Neira, Michael L. McGlauflin, Leonard M. Hanssen, Shawn P. Moylan, M A. Donmez, Joseph P. Rice
NIST is developing a facility titled the Additive Manufacturing Metrology Testbed that will enable advanced research into monitoring, controls, process development, and temperature measurement for laser powder bed fusion additive manufacturing and similar

Chapter 10: Color and Appearance

July 8, 2014
Maria E. Nadal, Clarence J. Zarobila
This chapter will cover the topic of color and appearance measurements. These measurements essentially constitute a specific example of the measurements described in previous chapters; except that they are performed in the specific wavelength range sensed

Reflectance Factor Measurement Complications Due to Near Infrared Fluorescence

September 1, 2010
Maria E. Nadal, Carl C. Miller, Clarence J. Zarobila
The researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have found that the widely used orange and red color tiles unexpectedly exhibit near infrared fluorescence. An analysis of the effect this fluorescence component has on the

Supercontinuum fiber laser source for reflectance calibrations in remote sensing

August 1, 2010
Clarence J. Zarobila, Heather J. Patrick
The Optical Technology Division of the NIST provides reference measurements of specular and diffuse reflectance of materials, including measurements that provide traceability for diffuser plaques that are used as onboard calibration standards in remote
