NIST studies how helium ion microscope measures up.NIST studies how helium ion microscope measures up.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
September 5, 2008 To improve measurement accuracy at nanoscale, researchers at NIST are probing microscope technology that uses helium ions to generate signal used to image extremely small objects. Images appear almost 3-dimensional, revealing details smaller than 1 nm. Clearest advantage of helium ion microscope is that images show actual edge of sample better than scanning electron microscopes, which is critical in precision manufacturing.
NIST releases WTC 7 investigation report for public comment.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
September 5, 2008 After extensive, 3-year scientific and technical building and fire safety investigation, NIST announced that fall of 47-story World Trade Center building 7 was primarily due to fires. Heating of floor beams and girders caused critical support column to fail, initiating fire-induced progressive collapse that brought building down. Video and photographic evidence combined with detailed computer simulations show that neither explosives nor fuel oil fires played a role in the collapse.
