DC and Quantum Metrology meeting attracts international audience

Attendees at biannual subcommittee meeting

JT Janssen of NPL (UK) organised and chaired a meeting of the DC and Quantum Metrology subcommittee of EURAMET’s Technical Committee for Electricity and Magnetism (TC-EM). The bi-annual meeting was held from 26 - 29 May 2015 at METAS in Bern, Switzerland. In addition to representatives from many European NMIs, the meeting attracted delegates from China, Australia, USA and Japan.

The three-day meeting was organised around the topics of single electron transport, the AC Josephson effect and graphene.The meeting also served as the dissemination meeting of EMRP project SIB07 'Quantum ampere: Realisation of the new SI ampere', which finished earlier this year. SIB07 aims to develop state-of-the-art single electron transport (SET) devices - known as SET pumps - which generate electric current by moving only one electron at a time. The project will combine these SET pumps with ultrasensitive single electron detectors to create highly-accurate quantum current sources for use as standards.
