Quantum Electromagnetics Division


Welcome to the Quantum Electromagnetics Division in NIST's Physical Measurement Laboratory.

Our mission is to provide the metrological foundation for emerging electronic, magnetic, and photonic technologies by developing high-precision measurement devices, systems, standards, and methodologies and applying them to address national needs.

We work in close coordination with colleagues in industry, academia, and other government agencies to ensure that we are responsive to their measurement needs in fields including microfabrication, molecular and bio-photonics, quantum processing, quantum sensors, nanoscale spin dynamics, spin electronics, and superconductive electronics.
