Summary

NIST has four new functions: Regional Centers for Transfer of Manufacturing Technology, State Technology Extension Services, the Advanced Technology Program, and National Technology Policy Development. The ceramics division at NIST has the objectives of providing industry with information to enable them to achieve key properties of ceramics and to assist in the development of crucial industrial technologies. The emphasis in this division is on advanced structural ceramics, optical materials, electronic materials, and computerized data/technology transfer. NIST is very involved in standards activities for advanced ceramics.
