Automotive Lightweighting

Ongoing
Our objective is to develop the measurement methodology, standards and analysis necessary for the US auto industry and base metal suppliers to transition from a

Autonomous Materials Science

Ongoing
We use autonomous experimentation (the merger of automated synthesis, characterization, AI-driven decision-making) to elucidate the role of composition

Charpy Machine Verification Program

Ongoing
CERTIFIED SUPER-HIGH ENERGY CHARPY SPECIMENS (NIST-VERIFICATION AND SELF-VERIFICATION) ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE IN THE NIST CATALOGUE (BOTH 2 MM AND 8 MM

DFT Repositories and Informatics

Ongoing
Reproducibility and reuse play fundamental roles in the development of science. With the growth of computational power and tools, simulated experiments have

Electrochemical Processes

Ongoing
In this project we are developing in situ measurements relevant to the electrochemical fabrication, processing, and application of nanostructured materials and

Fundamentals of Deformation

Ongoing
This project provides new measurement methods, property data and simulations for areas critical to US manufacturing, describing the mechanisms responsible for

Lead-Free Solder

Completed
Solder and solderability are increasingly tenuous links in microelectronics assembly as a consequence of ever shrinking chip and package dimensions, and the
