Quantum Electromagnetics Division

Our mission is to provide the metrological foundation for strategic, emerging electronic, magnetic, and photonic technologies by developing high-precision measurement devices, systems, standards, and methodologies and disseminating them to address national needs.

We interact and collaborate with stakeholders in industry, academia, and other government agencies to ensure that we are responsive to their measurement needs in quantum electrical standards; advanced materials analysis using X-ray sensor arrays; superconducting electronics and nanomagnetics for high-speed, energy-efficient, future generation computing; and quantitative medical diagnostic imaging.

News and Updates

Projects and Programs

Cryogenics

Low temperatures suppress noise and make quantum phenomena accessible. As a result, cryogenics play a crucial role in precision measurements.

Qubits

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

Spin Dynamics and Magnetic Microscopy

The Spin Dynamics and Magnetic Microscopy Project develops metrology for magnetodynamic effects such as ferromagnetic resonance, switching, and damping. We

Amplifiers

To process quantum information it is important to have amplifiers with wide bandwidth, high dynamic range, and low noise.
