High Throughput Methods for Materials R&D: A Growing Effort at NIST



Leonid A. Bendersky, J D. Hewes


The U.S. private sector has indicated that the National Institute of Standards and Technology has a role to play in facilitating the implementation of high throughput experimentation, for example using combinatorial methods. The Advanced Technology Program (ATP) is currently funding research projects in high throughput discovery of catalysts, electronic materials, and polymer coatings internally and externally to NIST. The NIST Measurement and Standards Laboratories is actively pursuing research in electronic materials and organic polymers. This presentation presents details on these efforts at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
