The patches are mounted on aircraft grade anodized aluminum and are set below the top surface to help protect from damage.
Micro Target: Patch sizes are 1/4” x 1/4”. The overall size is 1-7/8” high x 1-5/8” wide x 0.060” thick and are available with either gloss or matte center gray patches.
Nano Target: Patch sizes are 1/8” x 1/8”. The overall size is 1.0” high x 7/8” wide x 0.060” thick and are available with either gloss or matte center gray patches.
All colored patches on the perimeter are matte finish. Because these targets are hand cut and assembled, very minor patch mis-alignments may occur. They do not affect the target’s utility.
Gloss gray patches have an extended dynamic range (density ~ 2.4) and are suitable for measuring camera imager noise. Specular reflections from the gloss surface may occur for illumination geometries less than 45°/0° when used without crossed polarizers.
Matte gray patches have a lower dynamic range (density ~ 1.6) but are more suited to narrow illumination geometries such as those used in endoscopic imaging or with direct on-camera flash units. Because the matte surface can be interpreted as imager noise, we do not recommend using matte gray patch targets for evaluating imager noise in high magnification applications.
Batch Colorimetric information data for the patches can be found at Micro/Nano/Pico Colorimetry Data. NIST traceable calibrations and certificate are available for the color and gray patches of individual Rez Checker Micro targets at additional cost. (NIST certification is not available on Rez Checker Nano targets.)
