Vacuum & Pressure Metrology at National Institute of Standards and Technology
Julia Scherschligt is a leading expert in vacuum and pressure metrology with over a decade of experience in instrument science. She maintains and operates the leak calibration service, is heading a project to modernize the piston gauge calibration laboratory, and is active in research in the XHV.
Julia has a background in low-temperature condensed matter physics. She did her graduate research on transport physics of ferromagnetic semiconductors before coming to NIST in 2007. She worked for several years in the Condensed Matter Science group at the NIST Center for Neutron Research, then came to the Physical Measurement Laboratory where she began in the Low-Background Infrared Facility and is now in the Thermodynamic Metrology Group.
