Acoustic Techniques in Fluid Metrology

Ongoing
The Fluid Metrology Group leads the world in designing and using gas-filled acoustic resonators for measuring the thermodynamic temperature T, the Boltzmann

Controlling Microfluidic Cell Cultures

Ongoing
NIST has taken advantage of recent technological advances to develop polymer microfluidic cell culture systems that provide a level of control over the cellular

Digital PCR

Ongoing
Digital PCR (dPCR) is a method used to quantify nucleic acids (DNA, RNA, cDNA). At NIST we are using microfluidic and emulsion-based dPCR platforms for

Explosives Decomposition Chemistry

Ongoing
High-energy materials are commonly used as military explosives and as advanced propellants. The detailed chemical reactions responsible for detonation

Fluid Suspensions and Emulsions

Ongoing
The purpose of this project is to create rheological measurement methods and tools, focused on using minimal fluid volumes, to measure local flow dynamics and

Microcryocooler for Terahertz Detectors

Ongoing
NIST and the University of Colorado have been funded since April, 2006, by DARPA to develop a microcryocooler with a volume less than about 4 cm3 to cool a

NCNR DAC and CCUS efforts

Ongoing
Overview Capture of carbon dioxide from the air (direct air capture; DAC) combined with energy efficiency and carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS)

Polymer Formulations

Completed
Our goal is to develop combinatorial and high-throughput measurement approaches for rapid characterization of the structure and phase behavior of multicomponent

Renewable Energy and Fuels

Ongoing
Energy is one of the most critical problems facing the United States, with technical, economic, and public policy aspects. Our group develops state-of-the-art

Theoretical Mass Spectrometry

Ongoing
Mass spectrometry is an important technique in analytical chemistry, essential in areas including drug development, criminal and agricultural forensics

Tissue Engineering

Ongoing
Our goal is to develop reliable tools and standards for measuring the properties of cells, biomaterials, scaffolds and tissue-engineered constructs. As

Transient Flow Facility

Completed
Today, demonstration vehicles are refueled with hydrogen from dispensers within 3 to 5 minutes using sequential gas releases from a bank of pressurized
