The Material Measurement Laboratory at NIST is conducting this planning workshop to identify measurement gaps that are bridgeable with electron microscopy. In this workshop, we have identified three Nationally strategic industries: Beyond CMOS computing, Additive Manufacturing, and Biological and Soft Matter validation. We will hear from these industry leaders on the most pressing metrology problems they face today, as well as problems on the horizon.
Identify enabling measurements and resources in electron microscopy in order to strengthen Nationally strategic industries in a globally competitive market.
Electron microscopes are substantial research investments, both in terms of the tooling costs, and in the procurement and hiring lead times, particularly in the Government. The timescale for innovative solutions needed by industry often outpaces the speed of investments in our field. An evaluation of the measurement challenges in the industries where our Nation has a competitive edge is therefore essential to a microscope program’s ability to respond in a timely manner.
