NIST's High Frequency Metrology Programs: Current Capabilities and Future Directions
Ronald A. Ginley
Several core areas are covered by the NIST microwave metrology services. These include thermal noise, power, scattering-parameter (s-parameters), field strength and antenna parameters. The rapid change in technology and the current economic conditions have motivated us to re-examine our microwave measurement services at NIST, discuss what changes are happening to those services, and then give a glimpse of the future directions for the programs.
