On May 31, NGA coordinated a congressional staff visit to the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) to tour a few of the labs dedicated to NIST’s work with graphene. The congressional staff that attended found the tour and briefings extremely informative and provided a deeper understanding of graphene’s potential and the need for continued US investment.
NIST scientists discussed their work on Raman Spectroscopy of Quantum Materials, Graphene for Quantum Metrology, and Atomic Scale Quantum Nanoelectronics. NIST, in particular, is working with graphene to enable the development of innovative future electronics. NIST is a vital partner for the graphene industry as the success of graphene commercialization depends on NIST’s work to ensure that proper measurement science and standards are applied.
“Our collaboration with NIST is essential in shaping the future of the graphene industry in the U.S., ” said Dr. Jarrahi Cinker, Executive Director of the NGA.
NGA’s continued engagement at the federal level on behalf of its members and the graphene industry is producing results and continuing the momentum to greater commercialization.
Dr. Angela R. Hight Walker, Senior Scientist at NIST, will be speaking on graphene standardization at the Global Graphene Expo this October.
The National Graphene Association will be hosting its 2nd annual conference, the Graphene Global Expo in Austin, Texas, October 15-17. For more details visit: www.nationalgrapheneassociation.com
