Colors of Signal Lights: Their Selection, Definition, Measurement, Production, and Use

Colors of Signal Lights: Their Selection, Definition, Measurement, Production, and Use

Date: April 3, 1967
Creator: Breckenridge, F. C.
Description: Report discussing the selection, specifications, and use of signal-light colors. It discusses the nature of the problem, and the mathematical representation, recognition, production, control, and use of such colors. The characteristics of different types of chromaticity boundaries and the purpose and effect of the requirement for similarity of chromaticity characteristics are given special consideration. The treatment is varied according to the intended use. The discussion of the control of colors and the section on the use of colors are nontechnical, whereas the section on the production of signal colors is designed for the colorimetrist who is faced with the problem of selecting limit filters or drafting a specification.

Annotated Bibliography on Soft X-ray Spectroscopy

Annotated Bibliography on Soft X-ray Spectroscopy

Date: June 29, 1962
Creator: Yakowitz, Harvey, 1939- & Cuthill, J. R.
Description: Report presenting a bibliography of about 550 references of the soft X-ray literature since 1950 and through 1960. The emphasis is on the application of soft X-ray spectroscopy to the study of valence band electronic states in metals and alloys. Therefore, the spectral region of 25 to 800 angstroms involving ruled glass grating spectrometers is of principal interest. In addition to soft X-ray data, references on all pertinent aspects of the apparatus and experimental problems are included. Also listed separately are references of value in corroborating soft X-ray data with other results. Subject, author, X-ray band, material, and other indices are included.

Analysis of Optically Excited Mercury Molecules

Analysis of Optically Excited Mercury Molecules

Date: January 1975
Creator: Drullinger, R. E.; Hessel, M. M. & Smith, E. W.
Description: Report presenting new measurement techniques used to obtain potential curves, f-values, and kinetic behavior for Hg2. The Hg2 molecule is representative of a class of molecules which have dissociative ground states and bound excited states. It can therefore be used as a prototype of this class of molecules which are of interest as potential new laser candidates. Because of the non-bound ground state, standard absorption spectroscopic techniques cannot be used to obtain the necessary information about the excited states.

Measurement Assurance for Gage Blocks

Date: February 1979
Creator: Croarkin, Carroll; Beers, John & Tucker, Clyde
Description: Report discussing the philosophy of measurement assurance and the three levels of measurement assurance programs.
