This Standard Reference Material (SRM®) is intended for use in the calibration of magnetometers (such as vibrating sample magnetometers) used in the measurement of the magnetic properties of materials. NIST-2853 consists of a yttrium iron garnet (YIG) sphere with a nominal diameter of 1 mm and a nominal mass 2.8 mg. The NIST-2853 lot was produced by grinding pure (99.5 %), single-crystal YIG into spheres. /// Sample value(s) - please ask for current certificate.

National Institute of Standards and Technology

NIST provides over 1300 Standard Reference Materials® as well as articles and practice guides describing the development, analysis and use of SRMs.

NIST Standard Reference Materials are used by analytical laboratories in industry, academia and government in order to facilitate commerce and trade and to advance research and development. The SRMs are produced by the engineering laboratory, the material measurement laboratory, and the physical measurement laboratory at NIST. They are available for chemical composition, physical properties, and engineering materials.
