PDF copies of my refereed journal publications are provided here. One print or electronic copy may be made for personal use only. Commercial use or modification of the contents of any paper is prohibited.

Digital Object Identifier (DOI) names are given for most publications. These names (without the prefix 'doi') may be entered either in the resolver at www.doi.org or into the search field at NASA ADS, in order to quickly locate the paper online.

Many of the instrumentation articles I participated on were published in conference proceedings of the SPIE. (See Proceedings).
