he focuses on the design and maintenance of low-vibration
environments for vibration-sensitive facilities used for research,
development and production of microelectronics as well as
those used for nanotechnology, optics research, advanced physics
and bioscience studies. His early consulting work involved
a wide variety of structural settings, including nuclear power
plant seismic analysis, container crane design, and structural
failure analysis. Since 1993 he has served as vibration consultant
for design and renovation of laboratories at the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Mr. Amicks
