STATE-OF-THE-ART LAB UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
When it is ready for occupancy in 2004, the 47 480 [m.sup.2] (511 070 [ft.sup.2) AML will allow NIST to provide U.S. industry and science with improved measurements and standards, and more rapidly developed research advances. It will feature stringent controls on particulate matter, temperature, vibration and humidity that are unattainable in current NIST buildings. Such conditions are vital for housing the institute's most advanced metrology, physics, chemistry, electronics, engineering and materials science research, and will enable NIST to keep pace with rapid developments in semiconductors, industrial robots, computers, pharmaceuticals and emerging technologies requiring molecular and atomic-level precision.
