Multivariate calibration transfer in spectroscopy is an active area of interest. Many current approaches rely on the measurement of a subset of calibration samples on each instrument produced, an approach that can be impractical in many applications. Furthermore, such methods attempt to model implicitly, rather than explicitly, interinstrument differences.(More)
Previous works investigated a spectroscopic technique that offered a promising alternative to blood and breath assays for determining in vivo alcohol concentration. Although these prior works measured the dorsal forearm, we report the results of a 26-subject clinical study designed to evaluate the spectroscopic technique at a finger measurement site through(More)
Alcohol testing is an expanding area of interest due to the impacts of alcohol abuse that extend well beyond drunk driving. However, existing approaches such as blood and urine assays are hampered in some testing environments by biohazard risks. A noninvasive, in vivo spectroscopic technique offers a promising alternative, as no body fluids are required.(More)
In Part I of this paper, a framework for multivariate selectivity was introduced that is both calculable from first principles and experimentally tractable. In this part, we employ the proposed selectivity framework for analyzing both in vitro and in vivo near-infrared experimental data. Two in vitro data sets are used to compare different methods for(More)
Several calibration transfer methods require measurement of a subset of the calibration samples on each future instrument, which is impractical in some applications. Another consideration is that these methods model inter-instrument spectral differences implicitly rather than explicitly. The present work argues that explicit knowledge of the origins of(More)
