Rochester Institute of Technology is a private university located within the town of Henrietta in the Rochester, New York metropolitan area.RIT is composed of nine academic colleges, including National Technical Institute for the Deaf. The Institute is one of only a small number of engineering institutes in the State of New York, including New York Institute of Technology, SUNY Polytechnic Institute, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. It is most widely known for its fine arts, computing, engineering, and imaging science programs; several fine arts programs routinely rank in the national "Top 10" according to the US News & World Report.

A method and system for monitoring a signal from a function to record a set of values for each signal monitored; determining for each signal monitored the relative value of the signal being monitored over time; identifying each signal exhibiting a relative value representing a change in a pre-identified direction and each signal exhibiting a relative value not representing a change in the pre-identified direction, wherein each signal is aligned in the same direction relative to the pre-identified direction; dynamically weighting at least one signal monitored; displaying the monitored signals as an aggregate including enhancement of each signal exhibiting a change in the pre-identified direction; and causing a desired change in at least one monitored function based upon feedback of the displayed aggregate signals.

A spectrally selective (e.g., color) target has been designed and fabricated for reflectance micro- and/or macro-imaging that utilizes microlens arrays and color mirrors. The color mirrors are optical interference coatings. The microlenses are designed and fabricated such that the light reflected from the color mirror is incident onto the detector. This system of microlenses and color mirrors allows the user to image different colored specular highlights. An infinite number of spectral reflectance profiles can be created with these color targets and used for spectral and colorimetric imaging applications. The targets are not limited to the visible region; they can also be designed to work in the ultraviolet and infrared wavelength regions.
