1. Measurement of the optical properties of solid biomedical phantoms at the National Institute of Standard and Technology
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 3/6/2015
Authors: David W Allen, Paul Lemaillet, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: Solid phantoms that serve as a proxy for human tissue and provide a convenient test subject for optical medical imaging devices. In order to determine quantitative performance of a given system, the absolute optical properties of the subject must be ...

2. A collection and statistical analysis of skin reflectance signatures for inherent variability over the 250 nm to 2500 nm spectral range
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 6/4/2014
Authors: Catherine C Cooksey, Benjamin K Tsai, David W Allen
Abstract: The spectral reflectance signature of human skin provides opportunities to advance observations ranging from medical treatment to security applications. In this study 28 volunteers participated in a skin reflectance measurement of the inside of the r ...

3. A microscene approach to the evaluation of hyperspectral system level performance
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 5/18/2013
Authors: David W Allen, Ronald Resmini, Christopher Deloye
Abstract: Assessing the ability of a hyperspectral imaging (HSI) system to detect the presence of a substance or to quantify abundance requires an understanding of the many factors in the end-to-end remote sensing scenario from scene to sensor to data expl ...

4. Remote sensing of chiral signatures on Mars
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 11/1/2012
Authors: William Sparks, James H. Hough, Thomas Avery Germer, Frank Robb, Ludmilla Kolokolova
Abstract: We describe circular polarization as a remote sensing diagnostic of chiral signatures which may be applied to Mars. The remarkable phenomenon of homochirality provides a unique biosignature which can be amenable to remote sensing through circular ...

6. Measurement of H2O-Broadening of O2 A-band Transitions and Implications for Atmospheric Remote Sensing
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 3/27/2012
Authors: E. M. Vess, C. J. Wallace, H. M. Campbell, V. E. Awadalla, Joseph Terence Hodges, David A Long, D. K. Havey
Abstract: We present laboratory measurements of H2O-broadened 16O2 A-band ( ) absorption spectra acquired with a laser-based photoacoustic spectroscopy method. This absorption band is widely used in a variety of high-precision atmospheric remote sensing appli ...

8. Time-domain spectroscopy of the optical free-induction decay from vibrating molecules
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 4/26/2010
Authors: Ian R Coddington, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: Time-domain spectroscopy using dual, coherent frequency combs is used to measure free-induction decay from a molecular gas sample in the near-IR with a time-domain signal-to-noise ratio of ~10^u6^ over a ~6 ns window at 55 fs time resolution (corresp ...

9. Polarized Optical Scattering Signatures from Biological Materials
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 1/11/2010
Authors: W. E. Martin, E. Hesse, J. H. Hough, William Sparks, C. S. Cockell, Z. Ulanowski, Thomas Avery Germer, B. Kaye
Abstract: The polarization of laser light backscattered from biological samples has been measured over the wavelength range 350 to 850nm. Incident circular, linearly polarized, and unpolarized light produces significant spectrally prominent scattered polari ...

10. A microfabricated photonic magnetometer
Topic: Remote Sensing
Published: 6/14/2009
Authors: Jan Preusser, Svenja A Knappe, Vladislav Gerginov, John E Kitching
Abstract: A system for sensing magnetic fields is proposed, composed of an array of passive microfabricated alkali atom sensor heads coupled to a control unit using only optical interconnects. The optical coupling can be achieved by either free-space transmiss ...
