Technical Committee for Electricity and Magnetism

The Technical Committee for Electricity and Magnetism (TC-EM) further develops the discussion of technical issues related to electrical metrology. The technical areas are important to support industry and researchers. TC-EM focuses on:

  • Electrical quantum effects (Quantum Hall effect, Josephson effect, single electron tunnelling), realisation of the electrical units in the SI
  • DC voltage, current and resistance
  • AC/DC transfer, AC voltage and current, impedance
  • AC power and energy
  • Electric and magnetic fieldsRF power, scattering parameters, RF impedance and noise
  • Electrical measurements on materials
