Cannabis Laboratory Quality Assurance Program: Exercise 2 Moisture Final Report

November 29, 2022
Author(s)
Chuck Barber, Colleen E. Bryan Sallee, Carolyn Burdette, Shaun Kotoski, Melissa M. Phillips, Walter Brent Wilson, Laura Wood
In 2020, NIST launched Cannabis Laboratory Quality Assurance Program (CannaQAP) to improve the comparability of the analytical measurements of cannabis and cannabis-derived products in forensic and cannabis (hemp and marijuana) testing laboratories

Rydberg Engineering: Recent Techniques for Sensitive Field Measurements

November 29, 2022
Author(s)
Drew Rotunno, Nik Prajapati, SAMUEL BERWEGER, Aly Artusio-Glimpse, MATTHEW SIMONS, chris holloway, Amy Robinson
Highly-excited Rydberg atoms have been used for International System of Unit (SI)-traceable radio-frequency (RF) electric field and power measurements, but are limited in sensitivity to order 100 $\mu$V/m/$\sqrtHz}$ by noise and linewidth issues. These

Voices of First Responders: How to Facilitate Adoption and Usage of Communication Technology - An Integrated Analysis of Qualitative and Quantitative Findings

November 28, 2022
Author(s)
Yee-Yin Choong, Kerrianne Buchanan, Shanee Dawkins, Sandra Spickard Prettyman
The Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN) is being developed to provide a dedicated network for the use of first responders during incident response. A wave of new communication technologies compatible with the NPSBN is on the horizon, as

Digital Investigation Techniques: A NIST Scientific Foundation Review

November 21, 2022
Author(s)
James R. Lyle, Barbara Guttman, John Butler, Kelly Sauerwein, Christina Reed, Corrine Lloyd
This document is an assessment of the scientific foundations of digital forensics. We examined descriptions of digital investigation techniques from peer-reviewed sources, academic and classroom materials, technical guidance from professional organizations

Phase-transition-induced Thermal Hysteresis in Type-II Weyl Semimetals MoTe2 and Mo(1-x)W(x)Te2

November 19, 2022
Author(s)
Md Sabbir Akhanda, Sergiy Krylyuk, Diane Dickie, Albert Davydov, Fei Han, Mingda Li, Mona Zebarjadi
The resistivity versus temperature measurement is commonly used for identifying temperature-induced phase change and the resulting hysteresis loop. While the resistance is influenced by both the density of states and the carrier lifetimes, the Seebeck

Guide to a Secure Enterprise Network Landscape

November 17, 2022
Author(s)
Ramaswamy Chandramouli
Access to multiple cloud services, the geographic spread of enterprise Information Technology (IT) resources (including multiple data centers), and the emergence of microservices-based applications (as opposed to monolithic ones) have significantly altered

Using Business Impact Analysis to Inform Risk Prioritization and Response

November 17, 2022
Author(s)
Stephen Quinn, Nahla Ivy, Julie Chua, Matthew Barrett, Greg Witte, Larry Feldman, Daniel Topper, Robert Gardner
While business impact analysis (BIA) has historically been used to determine availability requirements for business continuity, the process can be extended to provide a broad understanding of the potential impacts of any type of loss on the enterprise

Engineering Trustworthy Secure Systems

November 16, 2022
Author(s)
Ronald S. Ross, Mark Winstead, Michael McEvilley
This publication describes a basis for establishing principles, concepts, activities, and tasks for engineering trustworthy secure systems. Such principles, concepts, activities, and tasks can be effectively applied within systems engineering efforts to

Life History, Contaminant and Histopathologic Assessment of Beluga Whales, Delphinapterus leucas, Harvested for Subsistence in Cook Inlet, Alaska, 1989-2005

November 16, 2022
Author(s)
Kathy Burek-Huntington, Kim Shelden, Kim Goetz, Barbara Mahoney, Dan Vos, Jessica L. Reiner, Jennifer Hoguet, Greg O'Corry-Crowe
Throughout the State of Alaska, ranging from the eastern Beaufort Sea to Bristol Bay, and within the boundaries of Cook Inlet, belugas are an important subsistence resource for Native communities. Cook Inlet belugas (CIBs, Delphinapterus leucas) are

An IEEE Standard for the Evaluation of Wireless Networks for Industrial Automation

November 15, 2022
Author(s)
Rick Candell, Mohamed Hany, Javier Perez-Ramirez, Juan Conchas
Adoption of wireless systems for use in industrial scenarios is increasing, although slowly, in process control and discrete manufacturing. In particular, factories must make the leap towards wireless networks as a central form of communications to enable

Measuring the Common Vulnerability Scoring System Base Score Equation

November 15, 2022
Author(s)
Peter Mell, Jonathan Spring, Dave Dugal, Srividya Ananthakrishna, Francesco Casotto, Troy Fridley, Christopher Ganas, Arkadeep Kundu, Phillip Nordwall, Vijayamurugan Pushpanathan, Daniel Sommerfeld, Matt Tesauro, Christopher Turner
This work evaluates the validity of the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) Version 3 ''base score'' equation in capturing the expert opinion of its maintainers. CVSS is a widely used industry standard for rating the severity of information

Investigating the electronic structure of high explosives with x-ray Raman spectroscopy

November 14, 2022
Author(s)
Oscar Ariel Paredes Mellone, Dimosthenis Sokaras, Trevor Willey, Michael Nielsen, John Vinson
We investigate the sensitivity and potential of a synergistic experiment-theory X-ray Raman spectroscopy (XRS) methodology on revealing and following the static and dynamic electronic structure of high explosive molecular materials. We show that advanced
