AC-DC Difference

The NIST ac-dc Difference Project provides U.S. industry with the essential link between ac and the corresponding dc electrical standards via a world-class

Advanced High Frequency Devices

The Advanced High Frequency Devices Program develops measurement methods to determine the characteristics of advanced electronics and devices at high

Advanced Materials Metrology

In this project we measure the fundamental electrical properties of materials from bulk to nanoscale from 1 MHz to 0.3 THz. Understanding the interaction of

Advanced Microwave Photonics

Research on quantum information (QI) seeks to control and exploit exotic properties of quantum mechanics, and researchers are already generating "unbreakable"

Amplifiers

To process quantum information it is important to have amplifiers with wide bandwidth, high dynamic range, and low noise.

Antenna Metrology

Antennas are the eyes, ears and voices of everything from cell phones to interplanetary spacecraft. The Antenna Metrology Program carries on PML's pioneering

Antenna Metrology Project

Antennas are the eyes, ears and voice boxes of everything from cell phones to interplanetary spacecraft. The Antenna Metrology Program carries on NIST's

Electronic Kilogram

This project provides the basis for a new definition of mass, based on unchanging quantum properties of nature rather than a physical artifact. This is

Fabrication

The application of modern micro- and nanofabrication techniques to superconducting and cryogenic electronics is enabling new capabilities and applications.

Farad and Impedance Metrology

This project aims to provide the world's best basis for accurate impedance measurements by tying the U.S. legal system of electrical units to the International

Fatigue in Silicon

Our objective is to evaluate mechanisms of fatigue in bulk silicon, a material that has been traditionally considered to be immune to degradation of mechanical

Fiber Sources and Applications

Optical frequency combs convert a laser source containing a single frequency of light into pulses that include thousands of frequencies. This project aims to

Field Parameter Metrology

Consider the consequences if nearby electronics could interfere with a jet's instruments or cause an automobile to stall. The Field Parameter Metrology Program

Flexible and Printed Electronics

Organic electronics and photovoltaic technology are reaching critical mass with the establishment of a U.S. consortium and the recent introduction of new

Fundamental Guided Wave Metrology

Radio-frequency (RF) waves and microwaves are involved with almost every facet of everyday life. Radio stations, television, wireless devices, satellite

Genomics of Electronic Materials

Our goal is to develop the metrology to enable a materials genomic approach to the discovery and optimization of complex electronic and electromagnetic
