Paper Title:
Monte Carlo Analysis as a Tool for Characterizing Uncertainty in Optical Calibration of End Standards
  Abstract

In this paper, Monte Carlo method (MCM) is used to analyze the uncertainty of optical calibration of end standards using both contact and non-contact techniques to validate the uncertainty values obtained by the conventional method, Guide to the expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM). Number of trials (M=104) is simulated with the probability density function (pdf) for each quantity, and the comparison between the results of the MCM and the GUM shows good agreement which in turn validates the uncertainty values obtained by the conventional method. The statistical analysis, variables' distributions, and the output of each technique are discussed in detail.
