Radio-Frequency Metrology from NBS to NIST, The Legacy
Dennis S. Friday
We review a century of metrology research and development in the U.S. that paralleled the birth of radio/wireless and other electromagnetic field technologies. The interplay between the scientific and technological advances and the research, measurement and standards development programs at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (formerly the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) as a factor that facilitated both commercialization of products and implementation of systems for the public benefit Friday, Dennis S.
