The nationwide Institute of criteria and Technology's (NIST's) heart for Nanoscale technological know-how and expertise (CNST) was once based on may perhaps 1, 2007, and continues to be in improvement with appreciate to tasks and staffing. It aspires to be famous either as a global chief in each one of its examine parts and as a firm supplying prepared entry to unexcelled nanoscale dimension and fabrication amenities.

An review of the nationwide Institute of criteria and expertise middle for Nanoscale technological know-how and Technology evaluates the final CNST accomplishments and operations for FY 2009. As asked by means of the Deputy Director of NIST, the scope of the evaluation incorporated the next standards: (1) the technical advantage of the present laboratory courses relative to present state of the art courses around the globe; (2) the adequacy of the laboratory funds, amenities, apparatus, and human assets, as they impact the standard of the laboratory's technical courses; and (3) the measure to which the laboratory courses in size technology and criteria in achieving their said goals and wanted effect.

Example text

These postdocs believed that they could make a case for pursuing new research directions and that there was a process in place for doing so. They felt more connected within the CNST research team than when they had belonged to larger university research groups in graduate school. They also commented on the rigor of the internal peerȬreview system for publications at NIST, and how it takes extra time but leads to a final document that is of the high standard for which NIST is recognized. Approximately 20 percent of the postdocs expressed a desire to be academics.

They noted that there is no research ethics training, although the internal publications vetting program attempts to make sure that data handling is sound. About 12 support staff members attended a separate luncheon discussion meeting with panel members. They expressed dedication to meeting and exceeding the expectations of their customersʊboth researchers and users. Some expressed a great need to hire more supporting staff in two areasʊclean room and research laboratoriesʊdue to the rapid expansion of staff, facilities, and equipment.
