Boulder Group


The Boulder Statistics Group focuses on collaborations with NIST scientists in the Boulder, Colorado, campus, and with scientists in external institutions in the Boulder, Fort Collins, and Denver areas. The NIST collaborations emphasize applications of statistical methods in the physical sciences, including electromagnetism and neutron physics, and in the materials sciences, including reliability and related standard reference materials. The Group also conducts research in statistical methods for the assessment of measurement uncertainty, and for the combination of measurements in interlaboratory studies.


Charpy Impact Machine Verification Program—The Charpy impact test is one of the most common tests used to quantify the breaking strength of metallic materials. The test is implemented by striking a small, rectangular metal specimen with a …

Statistical Methods in Waveform Metrology—Waveform metrology aims to develop new techniques and measurement services at bandwidths currently unattainable for waveform verification, to characterize high-speed electrical signals and …

Radiative Decay of the Neutron—Quantum electrodynamics (QED) predicts that a neutron will decay into a proton, electron and anti-neutrino. A small fraction of the time, this beta-decay process will also produce a photon. NIST …

Critical Current Metrology for Nb3Sn—The main focus of the project is to develop standard techniques for the measurement of critical current of high-temperature and low-temperature superconductors. Some applications for which these …
