SP 250 Series from Sensor Science Division

The Special Publication 250 series on NIST Measurement Services present the detailed descriptions of many of the Calibration Services offered by NIST. Below is a list of SP 250 documents that pertain to Calibrations Services performed by staff from the Sensor Science Division. Information provided in these documents includes: 1) specifications for the services; 2) design philosophy and theory; 3) NIST measurement system; 4) NIST operational procedures; 5) assessment of the measurement uncertainty including random and systematic errors and an error budge; and 6) internal quality control procedures used by NIST.
