NIST Researchers address magnetic field detection.NIST Researchers address magnetic field detection.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
February 3, 2009 According to NIST researchers, magnetic system that interleaves layers of magnetic alloy with a few nanometers of silver spacer dramatically enhances sensitivity, which could lead to improved magnetic sensors for applications ranging from weapons detection and non-destructive testing to medical devices and data storage. Structure reduced tensile stress over monolithic film of equivalent thickness by factor of 200 and lowered saturation field by factor of 400.
Nanomaterials may double service life of concrete.Nanomaterials may double service life of concrete.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
February 3, 2009 According to engineers at NIST, it is possible to double service life of concrete by using nano-sized additive that slows down penetration of chloride and sulfate ions from road salt, sea water, and soils into concrete. Studying variety of additives, engineers determined that size of additive's molecule was critical to serving as diffusion barrier. Larger molecules increased viscosity, but did not cut diffusion rates, while molecules less than 100 nm slowed ion diffusion.
Reference Material addresses hexavalent chromium in soil.Reference Material addresses hexavalent chromium in soil.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
February 3, 2009 Developed in collaboration with EPA and NJDEP, certified reference material aids in detection and measurement of carcinogen hexavalent chromium in soil, providing benchmark for measurements needed to guide and assess cleanup efforts.

NAM petitions to delay effective date of lead content limits.
National Association Of Manufacturers (NAM)    Washington, DC 20004
February 2, 2009 The NAM Consumer Product Safety Commission Coalition petitioned the CPSC to urge a delay in lead content limits of the 2008 Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act from February 10 to August 14, 2009. Rosario Palmieri, NAM VP, said this would give the CPSC time to develop exclusions for safe products that don't require duplicative or unnecessary testing. Palmieri also said the CPSC has failed to complete pending rulemaking or provide organizations with guidance on compliance.

NIST Scientists discover alloy for magnetic refrigeration.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
February 2, 2009 Scientists at NIST's Center for Neutron Research have discovered a metal alloy, consisting of manganese/iron/phosphorus/germanium, with magnetocaloric properties that could lead to more efficient refrigerators. Using neutron diffraction equipment, NIST worked with scientists from Beijing University of Technology to analyze alloy. They found that when exposed to magnetic field, material's crystal structure changes. Collaboration also included Princeton University and McGill University scientists.
