About Us

Welcome to the Polymers Division in the NIST Material Measurement Laboratory (MML)! Our mission is to enable U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness in the development and use of materials by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology – in ways that enhance economic security and improve the quality of life.

We focus on providing critical measurement solutions to enable advancements in science and technology. Our work encompasses a broad range of activities that include advanced imaging measurements of the interaction of biological systems with polymer materials, small-angle neutron and x-ray scattering measurements of nanostructured materials, the separation and purification of single-wall carbon nanotubes, and enabling new tests of the reliability of soft body armor.
