Dynamic Nanoflow Metrology

Current work, within the NIST on a Chip Program, includes developing microfluidic systems that improve the accuracy of flow measurements, which are fundamental

Electronic Biophysical Measurements

Chipscale electronic devices such as field-effect transistors (FETs) are being developed for biochemical applications ranging from clinical diagnostics to

Multi-Organ Microphysiological Systems

Ninety percent of clinical trials fail because - despite prior testing with animals - new drugs are often not effective or they turn out to be too toxic. We are

Nanostructures for Energy Conversion

Electrochemical systems containing nanostructured materials are increasingly being incorporated into devices for efficiently harvesting, storing, and converting

Optofluidic Cytometry

This NIST-wide collaborative project aims to improve biotechnology and medical diagnostics by increasing the resolution and precision of measurements of cells

Sensing, Transport, and Simulation

The transport of particles through a region of space acquires an imprint of local information that enables sensing, such as detecting the presence of a
