Craig Brown (Fed)

NIST Fellow and Team Lead: Structure and Dynamics of Materials

A NIST Fellow, Adjunct Professor, Chemical Engineering, University of Delaware , and staff chemist at the NIST center for Neutron Research, where he is the team-lead for Structure and Dynamics of Materials. The team merges diffraction and spectroscopy, operating 7 neutron instruments. BT-1 and BT-8 for crystallography and engineering diffraction. MACSDCSFANSHFBS, and spin-echo for spectroscopy. He has also been an instrument scientist for the DCS Spectrometer and significantly involved with various aspects of the EERE hydrogen storage program where neutrons are an exceptional asset. He previously managed the NCNR efforts in the DoE/EERE Hydrogen Sorption Center of Excellence, sitting on the Steering Committee and co-leading the Strong Binding of Hydrogen sub-project with Dan Neumann and NREL.

Further details can be found here. 

Current interests include sculpting a Carbon dioxide capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) and direct air capture (DAC) project and developing a recently funded capability upgrade for several CHRNS funded neutron instruments.
