  • Steve Cundiff Wins Silver Medal for JILA’s New X-Wing | JILA-PFC
    diverse scientific backgrounds the old facilities didn t encourage the informal collaborations and productive collisions that spark new ideas Today Cundiff is being recognized for his initiative and sustained leadership in envisioning and then seeing through to completion of the JILA X Wing Laboratory a 35 M advanced research and teaching laboratory This unique facility will benefit the nation through mission critical advances in measurement science according to the citation for the Silver Medal Thanks to Cundiff s leadership in a team of NIST CU and private sector partners the JILA X Wing provides world class research and teaching lab facilities provides room for JILA to grow and is a model for space that encourages collaboration and interaction After learning he had won the Silver Medal Cundiff recapped the 12 year history of efforts to get more space for JILA The idea for a new JILA building was first raised by Jim Faller in 2000 but failed to get traction Five years later after Cundiff had become Chief of NIST s Quantum Physics Division QPD he ran the idea by NIST Director Bill Jeffrey Jeffrey was sufficiently receptive to the idea that Cundiff returned to JILA to ask the Fellows if they wanted to pursue the idea A majority favored the new building Then the real work began The vision funding design and construction of the X Wing required a collaboration among NIST scientists and senior NIST management CU faculty and senior leadership NIST and CU facilities management and staff Congressional and Administration funders architects engineers and construction contractors Dr Cundiff was crucial to the success of this complex partnership leading the team to overcome many barriers including potential problems with funding as the U S economy soured the need for major design changes required by CU architectural standards the need to coordinate with other CU organizations as the X Wing was constructed in a very tight space immediately surrounded by other CU departments and the need to coordinate CU NIST and private sector partners all operating under different constraints wrote current QPD Chief Tom O Brian in his nomination letter for the medal All this planning came to fruition in May of 2010 with ground breaking for the X Wing During construction Cundiff and JILA staffer Doug Johnson worked tirelessly to keep things on track for building occupancy in early 2012 During the construction Steve was conscious of my research needs says Jun Ye I run a complex lab where we push the frontiers of measurement science Steve worked to make sure my research was left mostly intact When I mentioned a problem to Steve during the construction he took care of it I m grateful for that Otherwise I would have been out of business for a year and a half while the new building was under construction In addition to building new labs and protecting old ones Cundiff succeeded in opening up the entire new wing to daylighting via a large skylight and wide central staircase enclosed
