Physical Measurement Laboratory
PML is a world leader in the science of measurement. We determine the definitive methods for nearly every kind of measurement employed in commerce and research, provide NIST-traceable calibrations, and disseminate standards and best practices throughout the nation. At the same time, PML works continuously at the outermost frontiers of metrology, devising tools and techniques to meet the ever-changing demands of American industry and science.
A novel magnetic field sensor (MFS) may be created with an organic light emitting diode (OLED) made from an organic semiconductor material and an organic photodetector (OPD) built directly on top (or below) of the OLED, wherein one layer is made from a magnetically isotropic material, and which
A novel magnetic field sensor (MFS) may be created with an organic light emitting diode (OLED) made from an organic semiconductor material and an organic photodetector (OPD) built directly on top (or below) of the OLED, wherein at least one layer is made from an oriented molecular or polymer organic
A mapping probe provides real-time signal sampling and recovery from engineered electromagnetic interference and includes: a trigger voltage source that synchronizes transmission of primary electromagnetic waves; primary electromagnetic wave synthesizers that receive a trigger voltage signal and
The present invention features a micrometer-scale torsion balance device comprising a rigid mass and two or more nanoribbons attached to the rigid mass. The rigid mass may be suspended by the two or more nanoribbons. The two or more nanoribbons may be placed under tensile stress. A local
