1. A Design-of-Experiments Approach to FEM Uncertainty Analysis for Optimizing Magnetic Resonance Imaging RF Coil Design
Published: 10/10/2014
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Nathanael A Heckert, James J Filliben, Li Ma, Karl F Stupic, Kathryn E Keenan, Stephen E Russek
Abstract: Using the RF module of COMSOL, we compute the magnetic flux density norm (BN) profiles for frequencies in the 76 to 100 MHz range, inside of a prototype birdcage coil, courtesy of Japan's National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS), loaded wit ...

2. Generalizing Face Quality and Factor Measures to Video
Published: 9/24/2014
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, P Jonathon Phillips, James J Filliben, J. Ross Beveridge, Hao Zhang
Abstract: Methods for assessing the impact of factors and image-quality metrics for still face images are well-understood. The extension of these factors and quality measures to faces in video has not, however, been explored. We present a specific methodology ...

3. A New Approach to Finding a Risk-Informed Safety Factor for ,Fail-SafeŠ Pressure Vessel and Piping Design
Published: 8/24/2014
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Nathanael A Heckert, James J Filliben, Pedro Vincente Marcal, Stephen W. Freiman
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present a new approach to finding a risk-informed safety factor for the "fail-safe" design of a high-consequence engineering system. The new approach is based on the assumption of a 99.99 % confidence level and a 99.9 ...

4. Identifying Face Quality and Factor Measures for Video
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8004
Published: 5/21/2014
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, P Jonathon Phillips, James J Filliben, J. Ross Beveridge, Hao Zhang
Abstract: This paper identifies important factors for face recognition algorithm performance in video. The goal of this study is to understand key factors that affect algorithm performance and to characterize the algorithm performance. We evaluate four factor ...

5. A Baseline for Assessing Biometrics Performance Robustness: A Case Study across Seven Iris Datasets
Published: 11/7/2013
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, James J Filliben, Ross J Micheals, Michael D Garris, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: We examine the robustness of algorithm performance over multiple datasets collected with different sensors. This study provide insight as to whether an algorithm performance derived from traditional controlled environment studies will robustly extrap ...

6. Combining Genetic Algorithms & Simulation to Search for Failure Scenarios in System Models
Published: 10/28/2013
Authors: Kevin L Mills, Christopher E Dabrowski, James J Filliben, Sanford P Ressler
Abstract: Large infrastructures, such as clouds, can exhibit substantial outages, sometimes due to failure scenarios that were not considered during system design. We define a method that uses a genetic algorithm (GA) to search system simulations for parameter ...

7. Statistical Prediction of Sealant Modulus Change due to Outdoor Weathering
Published: 10/17/2013
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Adam L Pintar, James J Filliben
Abstract: Recently a statistically based model has been created to predict the change in modulus for a sealant exposed to outdoor weathering. The underlying high precision data supporting this model was obtained using the NIST SPHERE (Simulated Photo degrada ...

8. VASIR: An Open-Source Research Platform for Advanced Iris Recognition Technologies
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 118.011
Published: 4/22/2013
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, Ross J Micheals, James J Filliben, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: The performance of iris recognition systems is frequently affected by input image quality, which in turn is vulnerable to less-than-optimal conditions due to illuminations, environments, and subject characteristics (e.g., distance, movement, face ...

9. Sensitivity Analysis for Biometric Systems: A Methodology Based on Orthogonal Experiment Designs
Published: 3/4/2013
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, James J Filliben, Ross J Micheals, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to introduce an effective and structured methodology for carrying out a biometric system sensitivity analysis. The goal of sensitivity analysis is to provide the researcher/developer with the insight and understanding of ...
