EURAMET Expert Meeting on DC and Quantum Metrology

Large Blue Flare

Joint meeting with 'Final Dissemination Meeting' of EMPIR project QuADC;
NPL Teddington UK, 20 – 21 May 2019

The meeting

EURAMET Expert Meeting on DC and Quantum Metrology is open to experts at National Measurement Institutes and other institutions worldwide. The meeting will mainly consist of technical talks and posters of the participants, but intercomparisons and other EURAMET activities, including EMPIR projects, will be on the agenda. The meeting will provide an excellent opportunity to meet with experts in the field of DC and quantum metrology.

The end of the meeting will be devoted to results of the EMPIR project ‘Waveform metrology based on spectrally pure Josephson voltages’ (15SIB04, QuADC).

 

The project

EMPIR project ‘Waveform metrology based on spectrally pure Josephson voltages’ (15SIB04, QuADC), currently nearing its conclusion, aims to develop reliable and easy to use AC voltage measurement systems that can be traced to the standard SI volt. These measurement systems will allow a range of industrial end-users to develop previously unachievable processes and products that rely on fast analogue-to-digital conversion, such as power quality monitors, which provide support to the smart grids of the future. 

Final results from the project will be presented at this final stakeholder meeting.

Outline agenda

Monday, 20 May:

11:00 – 12:00              NPL laboratory visits

13:00 – 18:00              DCQM expert meeting

Evening                       Drinks reception to celebrate World Metrology Day and the new SI, followed by a meal in Teddington.

Tuesday, 21 May:

09:00 – 17:00              Joint DCQM expert meeting & QuADC EMPIR project final meeting

Delegates are welcome to attend the parts of the meeting of interest to them.

Registration, posters and presentations

Register, show interest in submitting a poster or presentation - deadline 31 March 2019.

A fee of £150 + VAT will be charged for coffee, lunches, the drinks reception and dinner.
