divisions developing quality programs independently. Laboratorycould yield a quality system that could be implemented uniformly in all the divisions.
The OLES continues to perform high-quality work very much in keeping with NIST's mission. However, its work is less well aligned with the mission of the EEEL, and its placement within this laboratory is beginning to put administrative limits on its programmatic expansion.
The OMP has been very successful at coordinating semiconductor-related research at NIST across divisional and laboratory boundaries. The panel supports the consideration of the formation of an Office of Optoelectronics Programs for a similar purpose.
