For outstanding service as the founding Director of CNST and for his groundbreaking research in atomic and molecular physics, surface physics, and solid state physics.
For advancing the use of economics and mathematics to facilitate cost effective resource decisions, improving life safety, security, and interoperability within the built environment.
A. Hunter Fanney
For positioning NIST as a leader in research supporting high-performance, sustainable buildings, and for advancing measurement science in the areas of building thermal envelope, appliance, and solar energy systems performance.
Gary L. Gilliland
For outstanding leadership and technical excellence in advancing structural biology at NIST, leading the NIST/University of Maryland Center for Advanced Research in Biotechnology, and establishing NIST’s structural biology database efforts.
Bettijoyce Breen Lide
For outstanding leadership and contributions in the application of informatics in a broad range of NIST programs, including Standard Reference Data, Advanced Technology, and Health IT Programs.
For outstanding contributions as a scientist/engineer making significant advances in the fields of analytical chemistry and bioengineering and as an administrator who inspired others through her leadership of NIST’s scientific and technical mission-focused laboratory programs.
Raymond D. Mountain
For major advances in the fundamental, molecular-level understanding of complex fluids, in particular water, through the pioneering development of light scattering theory and high-performance scientific computing at NIST.
Bourdon F. Scribner
For shaping atomic spectroscopy into a critical scientific quantitative chemical analysis method. His analyses of uranium ores significantly advanced U.S. efforts to build nuclear reactors during World War II.
Rolf L. Zeisler
(MML, 1978-1991 and 1996-2009)
For international leadership in development and implementation of nuclear methods in biosciences, environment studies, and promotion of SRMs at the highest levels of metrological science.
