NIST awards $24M in grants for new research facilities
Date:11/24/2008

which the proposed project complemented Commerce Department programs in science and technology.

Additional details on the three winning proposals and contacts for further information can be found at the end of this news release.

As a non-regulatory agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, NIST promotes U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards and technology in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS ON THE WINNING PROPOSALS

Center for Integrated Precision and Quantum Measurement (CIPQM)

  • University of California at Berkeley
  • NIST Award: $10,980,549
  • Cost-share: $8,695,562
  • Information contact: Bob Sanders, (510) 643-6998, rsanders@berkeley.edu

The CIPQM is intended to provide a state-of-the-art, high-stability, low-noise research facility for precision and quantum-level measurements. Planned research areas include the application of atomically resolved microscopy to operating nanoscale devices to observe dynamic processes and extremely rapid transient events at the nanoscale; quantum nanomechanics, an emerging discipline focused on the measurement and control of mechanical properties of nanostructures; interferometry with ultracold atoms, with applications ranging from basic research on fundamental physics to ultra-high precision gyroscopes and gravitational field detectors; solid-state magnetometers and amplifiers at the quantum limit, a precision measurement field with many applications in physics, earth exploration and medical devices that sense faint magnetic fields; and advanced optical metrology techniques at the nanoscale. These areas strongly complement existing quantum-level research programs at NIST.

The new center will be housed in an underground facility located in New Campbell Hall, a research building scheduled to
