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.
