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.
Competitive ProgramsNIST offers post-doctoral research associateships in collaboration with the National Research Council (NRC).NIST offers a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program for students majoring in science, mathematics, and engineering.
