Metrology of Dim Light Sources

Luminescent tags are molecular highlighters. They enable light-based biological assays, visualize biological processes, and are used as diagnostic and

Quantitative Information from Images

Photographs, or optical light images, are spatial records of light reflected or emitted from objects. Thus, they are prospective light measurements. In many

Night Vision Goggle Gain Calibration

NIST cooperates with the three services (Air Force, Navy, and Army) to realize a uniform night vision goggle (NVG) calibration system with low measurement

Neuromorphic Device Measurements

Neuromorphic computing is a radical new approach to information processing for artificial intelligence where, instead of using digital electronics, inspiration

Quantum Transport Measurements

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

Spintronics for Neuromorphic Computing

One of the most promising new approaches to next generation information processing is spintronics, where information is carried with electronic spin rather than

Temporal Computing

The human brain does some types of information processing, like speech recognition, image recognition, or video processing, much more efficiently than can be

Theory of Spin-Orbit Torque

The working of countless electronic devices involves electric and magnetic effects interacting within nanostructured materials. In the phenomenon known as spin

Reliable Vaccine Storage

We study provider-level vaccine storage and temperature monitoring methods to develop best practice guidance for public health audiences.

Accelerator Facilities

The Radiation Physics Division's accelerator facilities continue to support a broad range of research efforts in the areas of industrial and medical dosimetry

AC-DC Difference

The NIST Ac-dc2 Difference Project performs leading edge measurement services and research for ac-dc difference measurements and dc voltage metrology. We
