The Physics Laboratory supports U.S. industry by providing measurement services and research for electronic, optical, and radiation technology. It pursues directed research in the physical science; develops new physical standards, measurement methods, and data; conducts an aggressive dissemination program; and collaborates with industry to commercialize inventions and discoveries. The laboratory’s programs span a wide range from those that test the fundamental postulates of physics to those designed to meet the more immediate needs of industry and commerce.

Much of the laboratory’s research is devoted to overcoming the barriers to the next technological revolution, in which individual atoms and molecules will serve as the fundamental building blocks of electronic and optical devices. To develop the necessary measurement capabilities for these new products, laboratory scientists use highly specialized equipment to study and manipulate individual atoms and molecules.

The laboratory’s work in support of industry covers a broad scope of activities. For example, the laboratory is working to improve optical measurement techniques used in remote sensing, advanced color graphics systems, and optically pumped atomic clocks. Research also is focused toward advancements in the measurement and dosimetry of ionizing radiation used in medicine and industry and supports the development of emerging technologies such as x-ray lithography, digital x-ray imaging, and electron beam processing.
