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

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

Amplifiers

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

Antenna Metrology Project

Ongoing
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 Biophysical Measurements

Ongoing
Chipscale electronic devices such as field-effect transistors (FETs) are being developed for biochemical applications ranging from clinical diagnostics to

Electronic Material Characterization

Ongoing
To provide the necessary information for electronic material manufacturers to predict how and when failures will occur and enable lifetime analysis appropriate

Extreme Atom Probe Tomography

Ongoing
NIST is engaged in a joint effort between the Material Measurement Laboratory (MML) and the Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML) aimed at revolutionizing 3D

Fabrication

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

Farad and Impedance Metrology

Ongoing
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
