A:
Advanced Light Source Publications - Provides links to Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory Advanced Light Source (ALS) publications on ultraviolet and soft x-ray beams and synchrotron light [U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)]

Advanced Measurement Laboratory (AML) - Considered one of the most technically advanced research facilities in the world, the AML (located at NIST headquarters in Gaithersburg, Md.) supports some of the most delicate experiments in nanotechnology and measurement at the atomic level. [U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST), Various laboratories]

E:
Electronics and Telecommunications Portal - In the realm of electrons and light, NIST provides the standards, develops the instruments, and performs the calibrations necessary to keep both the smallest electronic components and the largest power grids running smoothly and safely. [U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST), Various laboratories]

F:
Frequency Combs - This page describes an optical frequency comb, a very precise tool for measuring different colors—or frequencies—of light. The page also summarizes NIST contributions to the understanding and application of frequency combs. [U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST), Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML)]

J:
JILA - This page describes JILA, a research institute in Boulder, Colo., jointly operated by NIST and the University of Colorado, Boulder. Research at JILA involves seven disciplines: astrophysics, atomic and molecular physics, biophysics, chemical physics, nanoscience, optical physics, and precision measurement. [U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST), Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML)]

P:
Precision Measurement Laboratory (PML) - This page describes the Precision Measurement Laboratory (PML) at NIST's Boulder, Colo., laboratories. The research facility, one of the most advanced in the world, meets exacting requirements in vibration isolation, temperature and humidity control, air cleanliness, and electrical power quality. [U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST), Various laboratories]

S:
Standard Reference Materials (SRMs) - NIST supports accurate and compatible measurements by certifying and providing over 1300 Standard Reference Materials® with well-characterized composition or properties, or both. These materials are used to perform instrument calibrations in units as part of overall quality assurance programs, to verify the accuracy of specific measurements and to support the development of new measurement methods.
