"Technology transfer is the overall process by which NIST
knowledge, facilities, or capabilities in measurement science, standards, and technology promote U.S.
Recommendation: To improve the management of NIST
interagency agreements and provide reasonable assurance that NIST
is efficiently using its resources and complying with applicable fiscal laws, the Secretary of Commerce should direct the NIST
Director to meet its responsibilities in ensuring the proper use of federal funds, (a) develop, implement, and communicate to its clients policies regarding reasonable time frames for beginning work on interagency agreements; (b) track and monitor the work start date for each agreement; and (c) monitor and report internally, and periodically inform federal clients about, the amount of time elapsed between when funds were advanced to it from client agencies and when it actually began billing against an agreement.
Still, the NIST
results are "a breakthrough," he adds, because the mercury clock's uncertainty of measurement is so tiny.
05 library is available with Version 2.0d of the NIST
MS Search Program for Windows through authorized dealers.
ATP's goal is to bridge the gap between the research lab and the marketplace by stimulating prosperity through innovation.
The Quantitative Infrared Database, NIST
Standard Reference Database 79, is available from the NIST
Standard Reference Data Program for $240.
provides a force calibration service whereby the response [R.sub.j] of a customer's transducer is measured for each of several applied reference forces [F.sub.j], with the forces applied in a sequence in accordance with an appropriate test method such as ASTM E 74-04 .
team considered doing parking lot simulations using cinder blocks and rebar but realized that it might be able to get more-realistic data.
evaluated the candidate algorithms and received invaluable assistance from cryptographers at computer security companies and universities around the world.
Such identification does not imply recommendation or endorsement by NIST
, nor does it imply that the materials or equipment identified are necessarily the best available for the purpose.
So far, the NIST
team has built, on a lilliputian scale, the part of an atomic clock that accepts a high-frequency oscillation from another part of the clock and compares it to a natural electromagnetic frequency of atoms of a specific element.
In the NIST
high-power, continuous-wave (CW) laser detector calibration laboratory, K-series calorimeters are used as primary standards for the absolute calibration of laser power and energy meters spanning a laser power range of 5 W to 1000 W with a cumulative energy input of 0.3 kJ to 3 kJ .
To check the uniformity of those replicas, their developers at the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST
) in Gaithersburg, Md., have also devised a new way to compare bullet surfaces mathematically.
A team of researchers from NIST
have met a major milestone in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) program by successfully microfabricating a cesium (Cs) vapor cell with a volume of less than 10 m[m.sup.3] using silicon micromachining techniques.
Officials at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST
) in Gaithersburg, Md., which orchestrated the contest, announced the result this week.
