Quantum matter from atomic gases

Ongoing
Measurement. Science is rooted in measurement: it is from measurements, as unified by theory, that understanding is born. Our comprehension of the universe is

Quantum Microcalorimeters

Ongoing
Superconducting devices at very low temperatures can be used to measure very small amounts of energy. Using this effect, the Quantum Sensors Group is building

Quantum Optical Networks

Ongoing
This program develops new measurement techniques, tests and performance procedures, standards, and best practices to enable industry and government to gain

Quantum Physics Theory

Ongoing
Theoretical work relevant to the determination of values of the fundamental constants, tests of bound-state quantum electrodynamics (QED), and methods of

Quantum Radiometry Project

Ongoing
Calibrated and characterized single photon sources and detectors are building blocks of the infrastructure required to achieve widely used, industrialized

Quantum Transport Measurements

Ongoing
We are developing the foundational knowledge and measurement infrastructure that will facilitate the use of solid state systems with emergent quantum properties

Quantum Voltage Project

Ongoing
Goal: To develop Josephson voltage standard (JVS) systems to improve the dissemination of primary standards and the accuracy of voltage measurements from DC to

Quantum Waveform Metrology

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

Qubits

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

Radiation Thermometry

Ongoing
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

Ongoing
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

Raman Metrology and Instrumentation

Ongoing
We develop measurement capabilities and protocols to validate and advance the science of Raman spectroscopy and work to establish NIST as a unique resource to

Reactivity of Nanoparticle Catalysts

Ongoing
Transition metal nanoparticle catalysts show great promise as the key enabling breakthrough for the realization of efficient and economical fuel cells. These

Real Fuels

Ongoing
This programs is aimed at determining the fundamental chemical and physical properties of the large organic compounds in fuels related to their combustion. Such

Recent Graduate Program

Ongoing
Recent Graduate Program About the Program: The Recent Graduates Program affords developmental experiences in the Federal Government intended to promote possible
