THE NATIONAL BUREAU OF STANDARDS
The National Bureau of Standards' provides measurement and technical information services
essential to the efficiency and effectiveness of the work of the Nation's scientists and engineers. The
Bureau serves also as a focal point in the Federal Government for assuring maximum application of
the physical and engineering sciences to the advancement of technology in industry and commerce. To
accomplish this mission, the Bureau is organized into three institutes covering broad program areas of
research and services:
THE INSTITUTE FOR BASIC STANDARDS ... provides the central basis within the United
States for a complete and consistent system of physical measurements, coordinates that system with the
measurement systems of other nations, and furnishes essential services leading to accurate and uniform
physical measurements throughout the Nation's scientific community, industry, and commerce. This
Institute comprises a series of divisions, each serving a classical subject matter area:
-Applied Mathematics-Electricity-Metrology-Mechanics-Heat-Atomic Physics-Physical
Chemistry-Radiation Physics-Laboratory Astrophysics--Radio Standards Laboratory,2 which
includes Radio Standards Physics and Radio Standards Engineering-Office of Standard Refer-
THE INSTITUTE FOR MATERIALS RESEARCH ... conducts materials research and provides
associated materials services including mainly reference materials and data on the properties of ma-
terials. Beyond its direct interest to the Nation's scientists and engineers, this Institute yields services
which are essential to the advancement of technology in industry and commerce. This Institute is or-
ganized primarily by technical fields:
-Analytical Chemistry-Metallurgy-Reactor Radiations-Polymers-Inorganic Materials-Cry-
ogenics2--Materials Evaluation Laboratory-Office of Standard Reference Materials.
THE INSTITUTE FOR APPLIED TECHNOLOGY ... provides technical services to promote the
use of available technology and to facilitate technological innovation in industry and government. The
principal elements of this Institute are:
-Building Research-Electronic Instrumentation-Textile and Apparel Technology Center-
Technical Analysis-Center for Computer Sciences and Technology-Office of Weights and Meas-
ures-Office of Engineering Standards Services-Office of Invention and Innovation-Clearing-
house for Federal Scientific and Technical Information.3
