Software Defined Virtual Networks

NIST is working to develop test and measurement techniques to advance the state of the art in network virtualization, network service function chaining

Software Performance Project

The mission of the Software Performance project is to strengthen the scientific foundations of software performance measurement ("metrology for IT").

Solid-state lighting metrology

With the rise of new, energy-efficient solid-state lighting (SSL) systems has come the need for new performance metrics and measurement methods to address their

Solvation Free Energies

Measuring and maintaining water quality is increasingly becoming a significant global issue. As new chemicals are introduced into the water supply, development

Solvation Thermodynamics

Using data from REFPROP 8.0, thermodynamic quantities for the self-solvation of 76 pure fluids were computed. These quantities are valuable for comparison to

Sources, detectors and metrology

We develop and learn how to characterize non-classical sources and single-photon detectors. It turns out that it is not enough to characterize detectors of

Speaker and Language Recognition

Our Speaker and Language Recognition program includes several activities contributing to speaker and language recognition technology and metrology advancements

Special Functions

This project will create a web-based portal enabling users to evaluate a large class of special functions to essentially arbitrary accuracy at user-defined

Spectral responsivity measurement

NIST provides calibration of the spectral responsivity and spatial uniformity of photodetectors for use in industrial and government labs. These calibrations

Spectrophotometry

Spectrophotometry is the quantitative measurement of the reflection or transmission properties of a material as a function of wavelength. While relatively

Spectroradiometry of sources

Calibration standards for spectral radiance and spectral irradiance are disseminated in the form of transfer lamps and integrating sphere sources. These
