Practically all measurable physical phenomena are eventually transformed into corresponding electrical representations. The transduction of a signal into its

Qubits

The Qubits Project develops new geometries for superconducting quantum binary devices as fundamental building blocks for quantum computing.

Radiation Thermometry

Calibration standards for radiation thermometry are disseminated in the form of radiation thermometers, tungsten strip lamps and blackbodies. These disseminated

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
