Fueled by the convergence of Industry 4.0, the second quantum revolution, and advances in integrated photonics and nanomanufacturing, NIST has embarked on a sweeping program to revolutionize metrology.  Building on the success of the chip-scale atomic clock, which shrunk a lab of sophisticated equipment run by Ph.D. physicists down to a commercial device the size of a grain of rice, NIST is miniaturizing its core measurement technologies into a suite of quantum-based standards that never need to be taken off-line for calibration.  This talk will provide an overview of this program, known as NIST on a Chip, and some of the opportunities it is enabling.
Presenter: Barbara L. Goldstein
Associate Director, Physical Measurement Laboratory
Program Manager, NIST on a Chip
National Institute of Standards and Technology
Ms. Barbara Goldstein serves as Associate Director of the Physical Measurement Laboratory, the largest operational unit at NIST consisting of approximately 1300 staff and associates and three joint institutes, and which is responsible for realizing and disseminating rigorous measurements to support commercial, defense and research enterprises.  Ms. Goldstein manages the “NIST on a Chip” program which is establishing a new paradigm for precision measurement dissemination through a suite of deployable, fit-for-purpose, quantum-based standards to be embedded in products or installed at user sites.  
Ms. Goldstein is contributing to the emerging quantum economy through international standardization activities.  She leads a standardization outlook and maturity assessment subgroup of the UN-based ITU-T Focus Group on Quantum Information Technology for Networks and developed a standards landscape through the Quantum Economic Development Consortium.  She led the development of e-commerce standards that have been used in hundreds of thousands of business transactions; led roadmap efforts on the industrial Internet of things (IIoT) and factory automation; and developed and led the NIST Technologies for the Integration of Manufacturing Applications program which competitively awarded a cost shared research portfolio of approximately $150M.  Prior to joining NIST in 1992, she implemented information management systems at McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing), and managed computing facilities at the Israeli Land Authority in Jerusalem.
