Mr. Vest graduated from Brown University in 1991 with a Sc.B in physics. While at Brown, he worked on superconducting edge bolometers for use in solar neutrino detectors. During this time, he also worked on the NIST racetrack microtron and free electron laser project as a control system designer and computer programmer. He came on staff at NIST in 1991 in the far and extreme ultraviolet detector program, making calibration measurements and performing research in the development and characterization of detectors. In 1998 he assumed the leadership of the far and extreme ultraviolet detector program and continues to perform research in EUV radiometry techniques, technology, and applications and to provide calibration and metrology support to the EUV user community.
