Electromagnetics Division

Welcome

The Electromagnetics Division in NIST's Physical Measurement Laboratory is being reorganized. At the present time, it contains the Magnetics Group, which develops measurement technology for industries broadly concerned with magnetic information storage and biomagnetic imaging, spanning the range from practical engineering to theoretical modeling.

Key program directions include: (1) development of advanced measurement technologies required by both research-and-development and manufacturing communities; (2) development and characterization of standard reference artifacts, measurement methods, and services that provide the basis for international recognition of measurements; and (3) provision of expert technical support for national and international standards activities.

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 high-speed microelectronics for computation and telecommunications, medical diagnostic imaging, magnetodynamics, and spin electronics.
