A B J N P Q

A:
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 Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Various laboratories]

B:
Bose-Einstein Condensation - An archival website describing the work of Nobel Prize winner Eric Cornell and others in using Bose Einstein condensates to study quantum physics. [U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), National Institute 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 Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML)]

Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) - The Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) is a quantum research center bringing together scientists from the Department of Physics of the University of Maryland (UMD), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS). [U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML)]

N:
Neutron Interferometry and Optics Facility (NIOF) - The Neutron Interferometry and Optics Facility (NIOF) located in the NIST Center for Neutron Research is one of the world's premier user facilities for neutron interferometry and related neutron optical measurements. A neutron interferometer (NI) splits, then recombines neutron waves. This gives the NI its unique ability to experimentally access the phase of neutron waves. [U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR)]

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 Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Various laboratories]

Q:
Quantum Information Program - This program is a coordinated effort to build the first (prototype) quantum logic processor consisting of approximately 10 qubits. The prototype device will be used to provide a proof-in-principle of the ability to process quantum information, demonstrate stabilized quantum memory, and quantum error correction, quantum repeater without output coupling, and to implement optimal quantum strategies for precision measurement.
