Project Manager, Technology Innovation Program NIST
Dr. Jean-Louis Staudenmann has been a Project Manager in the Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) at NIST taking care of nineteen AMTech projects since 2013. Before, he was in the Project Management Office (PMO) at TIP since its inception in January 2008, where he managed projects on sensors and energy harvesting devices, materials advances, metallurgical processes, and recycling technologies, as applied to civil infrastructure and advanced manufacturing. Prior to those activities at TIP, Dr. Staudenmann was a member of the Chemistry and Materials Group with the Advanced Technology Program (ATP) at NIST since 2000, managing materials advances, metallurgical processes, and recycling technologies.
While at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, 1987 to 1993, Dr. Staudenmann lead the design and the construction of two beamlines dedicated to biological samples and crystals. From 1993 to 2000, he was in the Quantum Metrology Division of the Physics Laboratory at NIST, working mainly on x-ray optics and designing wide energy range multi-crystal monochromators for testing the Chandra x-ray telescope, now in orbit around the earth. He also worked on several standards for x-ray powder diffractometry.
Dr. Staudenmann is a member of the Materials Information Society (ASM International), the Materials Research Society (MRS), and The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). Dr. Staudenmann obtained his Ph.D. and M.S. in Experimental Solid State Physics from the University of Geneva (Switzerland) and an Engineering Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from the Geneva School of Engineers.
