National Nanotechnology Coordination Office
Director

Clayton Teague is Director of the federal National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) since April 2003. Dr. Teague was previously Chief of the Manufacturing Metrology Division in the Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Dr. Teague joined NIST in 1972 were he designed, constructed, and used precision instrumentation for ultra-high accuracy dimensional metrology of surfaces and micrometer to nanometer-scale features. Beginning with his metal-vacuum-metal tunneling work in the 1970’s, he continued to work with such precision instrumentation as scanning tunneling microscopes, atomic force microscopes, displacement and phase-measuring interferometry, stylus instruments, flexure stages, and light scattering apparatus. Because the laboratory and building environments were always factors in the ultimate performance of these instruments, the subject of this workshop has been an ongoing topic of great interest.

Dr. Teague is a member of the American Society for Precision Engineering, has served twice as the Society’s President, and is a fellow of the UK Institute of Physics. He served as Editor-in-Chief of the international journal Nanotechnology for ten years and is currently a member of the Editorial Board of the journal. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in physics from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a Ph.D. He has authored or coauthored 70 papers, has presented 50 invited talks in the technical fields described, and jointly with colleagues, has six patents. Dr. Teague has received the Gold Medal, Silver Medal, and Allen V. Astin Measurement Science Award from the Department of Commerce, the Kilby International Award by the Kilby Awards Foundation, and an IR-100 Industrial Research and Development Award for his work.

Naval Research Laboratory
Superintendent, Chemistry Division
Executive Secretary of NSET

Dr. James S. Murday received a B.S. in Physics from Case Western Reserve in 1964, and a Ph.D. in Solid State Physics from Cornell in 1970. He joined the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in 1970, led the Surface Chemistry effort from 1975-1987, and has been Superintendent of its Chemistry Division since 1988. From May to August 1997 he served as Acting Director of Research for the Department of Defense, Research and Engineering. From January 2003 to July 2004, he served as Chief Scientist, Office of Naval Research. From January 2001 to April 2003 he served as Director, National Nanotechnology Coordination Office. He is presently Executive Secretary to the U.S. National Science and Technology Council’s Subcommittee on Nanometer Science Engineering and Technology (NSET).

He is a member of the American Physical Society, the American Chemical Society and the Materials Research Society; and a fellow of the AVS-the Science and Technology Society, and the UK Institute of Physics. For the AVS, he has served as trustee for 1981-1984, director for 1986-1988, representative to the American Institute of Physics Governing Board 1986-1992, president for 1991-93, and representative to the Federation of Materials Societies 1998-2003. His research interest in nanoscience began in 1983 as an Office of Naval Research program officer and continues through the NRL Nanoscience Institute. He has organized numerous International STM/NANO conferences and their proceedings. Under his direction, both the AVS and the International Union for Vacuum Science, Technology and Applications created a Nanometer Science/Technology Division.

Purdue University
Research and Development Manager
George B. Adams III received a BSEE degree in 1978 and a MSEE degree in 1980 from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and a Ph.D. degree in 1984 from Purdue University.

In 1983 he became one of the five initial staff members of the Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science (RIACS) at the NASA Ames Research Center. His work focused on high-performance computing for scientific applications. While at RIACS during 1986 he was also a Visiting Lecturer with the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University.

In 1987 he joined the faculty of the School of Electrical Engineering at Purdue University. He has co-authored over 40 journal and conference papers, 9 book chapters, and a US patent. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE. Both the General Motors Corporation Technical Education Program and the National Technological University have named him an Outstanding Instructor for his distance education classes.

He joined the team planning the Birck Nanotechnology Center in Spring 2000 and became its Research Development Manager in 2004. Dr. Adams works to foster new multidisciplinary nanoscale research efforts and to promote application of nanoscale research results to the needs of society.
