Fundamental Chemical Metrology

The Chemical Sciences Division serves as the Nation's reference laboratory for chemical compositional measurements and standards to enhance U.S. industry's

Illicit Narcotics Detection

NIST is measuring the trace chemical signatures and quantities of trace residues and background levels that contaminate surfaces associated with the concealment

Inorganic Phase Equilibrium Data

Compile and evaluate phase equilibrium data for NIST Standard Reference Database 31 (Phase Equilibria Diagrams); disseminate the data in a readily accessible

Ion Mobility Spectrometry

Ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) is widely used for national security and law enforcement, placed at key transportation checkpoints such as airports and border

Membranes for Clean Water

This project provides measurement solutions that probe the surface and internal structure of polymer membranes used in water purification, and correlate that

Metrology of Magnetic Materials

We are developing best practice metrology for characterization of magnetic nanoparticle systems (e.g. blocking temperature, anisotropy, property distributions

Modeling and Simulations

Modeling and Simulation are vital for metrology. Models help define measurable quantities and establish their significance and application. One of the simplest

Nanocalorimetry Measurements

Nanocalorimetry provides a capability to measure the thermal properties of very small samples and at very fast rates. Materials and interfaces of interest

Nature of the Threat

We use a variety of measurement tools to gain a full understanding of current drug and explosive threats. Particle size, chemical composition, morphology
