EEEL has been quite successful in pursuing OA funding. Many projects now obtain 50 percent or more of their total funding from OA. However, this success could also result in an increase in the fraction of temporary staff, an increased workload for the permanent staff to maintain the OA funding, a shift away from EEEL’s mission to satisfy the OA objectives, a diminishment of NIST’s independent authoritative position, and a further strain on EEEL’s ability to maintain its core competency. These issues are well known to EEEL management but remain an ongoing challenge.

Other panel members had less restrictive interpretations of the above-mentioned national priority documents. During the next review the panel will seek clearer and more specific policy guidance on this point. THE PLANNING PROCESS The two new research areas, macroelectronics and nanobiotechnology, are very strong and have allowed for the recruitment of outstanding young investigators. The linewidth standard activity has been phased out ever since suitable standard reference materials were developed and made available through NIST.

The new AML facilities are impressive. While laboratories in older buildings still have specific problems, these problems now seem to be the exception rather than the rule. In general, the quality of laboratory space ranges from acceptable to excellent. While the Boulder clean room and fabrication facilities are extremely cramped and suffer from poor control of air conditioning and humidity, most facilities are now considered acceptable by the staff, since the promised Boulder expansion will reduce dependence on the older facilities.
