NIST Paper details design of super-sensitive gas detector.NIST Paper details design of super-sensitive gas detector.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
January 16, 2009 Titled "Fabrication and Gas Sensing Performance of Parallel Assemblies of Metal Oxide Nanotubes Supported by Porous Aluminum Oxide Membranes," NIST paper describes method of creating gas detectors sensitive enough to some day register gas emissions from single cells. The sensor's sensitivity is derived from responses of gas interacting with nanotube interiors. This could provide a way to determine if drugs or nanoparticles harm cells or to study how cells communicate.
NIST Scientists gain insight into polymer film instability.NIST Scientists gain insight into polymer film instability.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
January 16, 2009 While exploring the properties of polymer formation, NIST scientists have determined that temperature can play a decisive role in determining which of two competing processes - crystallization and dewetting - will dominate when semicrystalline polymer film hardens, thereby granting qualitatively different properties to finished film. This discovery could improve methods of creating stable crystalline films that are widely used in electronics applications.

NAM announces import decline outpaces fall in exports.
National Association Of Manufacturers (NAM)    Washington, DC 20004
January 15, 2009 NAM reports that Commerce Department's November 2008 trade data shows a $13 billion decrease in manufactured goods trade deficit. With fall of 6% for exports and 14% for imports, numbers reflect declining economic conditions in U.S. Frank Vargo of NAM says this will have impact on manufacturing employment and that end of export boom creates more of a need to stimulate U.S. economy for long-term job creation.

European Commission resolves product labeling issue.
National Association Of Manufacturers (NAM)    Washington, DC 20004
January 15, 2009 Working on Europe's pending 'Metric Only' regulations for 20 yr, NAM commended European Union and U.S. Government for resolving transatlantic trade issue related to labeling of products imported into EU. EU was poised to require all imports from U.S. have metric labels only, no non-metric or imperial measurements, potentially imposing severe costs on U.S. exporters. Extending current dual-labeling provisions indefinitely is a good solution for business in U.S., Europe, and around the world.
