High-Frequency Metrology at NIST: Current Programs and New Directions



Dennis S. Friday, Ronald A. Ginley


We provide an overview of the current state of high-frequency and microwave metrology programs at NIST, as well as a discussion of recent changes, emerging needs and exploratory new directions. A brief description of each of the core microwave metrology measurement services, (power, noise, scattering parameters, field strength, and antenna) is provided. Several of the newer programs, driven by needs which may lead to future measurements services, are also described.
