Our Mission: To Ensure and Promote Excellence in Measurement Science
The Materials Measurement Science Division supports the nation’s materials science needs by providing:
- Measurements for the determination of composition, structure, and properties of a variety of materials;
- Standard reference materials, scientific and standard reference data, documentary standards and other methods and materials used to validate existing methods and enable realization of new technologies;
- State-of-the-art instrumentation, methods, models and software to accurately and precisely measure materials over a range of length and time scales
- Basic measurement science research to support core capabilities and foster innovation.
Organization: The Materials Measurement Science Division is organized into eight groups according to technical and programmatic expertise.
Key Program Areas: Advanced Materials (functional properties , structure and data); Materials Genome Initiative; Nanometrology (materials and properties); Microscopy; Safety, Security and Forensics; and Synchrotron Science.
