Research opportunities are available to develop new primary standards for pressure, vacuum, and small gas flow and new approaches to disseminate measurements traceable to these standards to US industry. We are also interested in methods to advance the measurement of pressure, vacuum, and small gas flow in important industrial applications. Areas of particular interest include advanced vacuum sensors based on a carbon nanotube field emitter; the accurate determination of the outgassing rates of water vapor and other molecules from various types of surfaces found in ultrahigh vacuum systems and space hardware; the quantitative measurement of particle pressures in vacuum systems; and the measurement of pressure, vacuum, or small gas flow, and the investigation of outgassing from 3-D printed structures.
