Electromagnetic Technology Division 2002 Technical Accomplishments



Sara E. Metz


The roughly forty staff and guest scientists in the Electromagnetic Technology Division take great pride in bringing you this brief report on recent progress in our Division. We have a long history of inventing and disseminating new standards and measurement technology. We focus on exceptional standards and measurement methods using remarkable quantum effects and low noise available only at temperatures close to absolute zero or -452 F (0 K). This book describes some of our recent successes.
