Dr. John Slotwinski is a Physicist in the Production Systems Group within the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Intelligent Systems Division, where he manages a large research effort on Material Standards for Additive Manufacturing, and contributes his expertise in sensor systems to NIST work on additive processes.
John’s nearly 25 year career at NIST has included research in ultrasonic NDT, as well as stints as Strategic Planning Manager and Scientific Advisor for the Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory, and NIST Liaison to the US Automotive Industry where he managed a multi-year, multi-million dollar portfolio of NIST projects.
Dr. Slotwinski has published numerous technical papers, including in periodicals such as Physical Review B, Applied Optics, and The Journal of Research in Nondestructive Evaluation. He is the author of the ultrasonics chapter in the ASTM Handbook of Reference Data for Nondestructive Testing (February, 2002), a widely-used NDT field-guide, and recently co-authored a soon-to-be-published chapter on Metrology Challenges in Additive Manufacturing. He has given numerous conference presentations and invited talks.
Dr. Slotwinski is a member of Sigma Xi and Past President of the NIST Chapter of Sigma Xi. He has been a member of The American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT), The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), ΣΙΙΣ (National Physics Honors Society), and AΣΝ (National Jesuit Honors Society.) He is also past chairman of the ASTM E07-06-02 subcommittee on ultrasonic reference blocks and calibrations. Dr. Slotwinski was awarded a Ph.D. degree in Physics from The Catholic University of America (CUA) in 1998, as well as M.S. (CUA, 1995) and B.S. Cum Laude (Loyola College, 1991) degrees, also in Physics. In 1991 he was awarded the Loyola College Physics Medal, in recognition for his best-in-class academic performance in physics. He has been recognized by several ASNT Chapters for his contributions to ultrasonic testing, and currently serves as Chairman of the Loyola University Natural Sciences Steering Committee. Dr. Slotwinski was awarded the Department of Commerce Bronze Medal for superior federal service in 2007. Since 2005 he has been an Executive Coach for aspiring NIST leaders.
