NIST Center Nanoscale Science and Technology

Rachel Cannara is a Project Leader in the Nanofabrication Research Group in the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST) at NIST. She received a B.S. in Physics from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she studied the nanoscale tribological properties of diamond. Rachel joined the CNST staff in 2009 after two years as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the probe-based storage group at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory. Her current research focuses on the use of atomic force microscopy for the measurement of mechanisms governing nanoscale frictional energy dissipation, with the goal of using these discoveries to enable the design, characterization and operation of future nanomechanical and nanomanufacturing systems. She currently leads the Nanotribology Laboratory at the CNST, and is a contributing author to Micro- and Nanoscale Phenomena in Tribology (CRC Press). Rachel is also participating in a NIST-wide project on high-throughput microwave characterization of carbon-based nanocomposites, for which she is providing complementary measurements and expertise in Raman spectromicroscopy.
