iMERA-Plus Electricity and Magnetism T4.J07 EMF and SAR Traceable measurement of field strength and SAR for the Physical Agents Directive With respect to the exposure of workers to electromagnetic fields (EMF) a new directive made the provisions of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) a legal requirement across Europe. When starting the project existing standards within Europe did not give comprehensive coverage of the specific absorption rate and the incident power flux density over this range. Thorsten Schrader completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Length T3.J3.1 Long distance Absolute long distance measurement in air When starting the project, long-range measurements were performed with electronic distance measurement (EDM) instruments. One of the best of these instruments is Kern Mekometer ME5000 with a measurement range of 20 to 8000 m. Many of these instruments are still in use, but new instruments have not been available since the 1990's. They are based on the principle of measuring the phase shift of a modulation frequency along the path measurement. Jean-Pierre Wallerand completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Electricity and Magnetism T4.J02 NanoSpin Nanomagnetism and Spintronics When starting the project in the field of nanomagnetism and spintronics, exciting new developments are under way in applications ranging from ultra strong magnets, spin polarized materials, ultra high density recording media, such as hard disks, flash memories/MRAM, spin transistors or spin-based qubits, leading to potential mass market products such as the instant boot computer, computer in a test tube and ubiquitous DNA- and bio-sensors. completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J10 TRACEBIOACTIVITY Traceable measurements for biospecies and ion activity in clinical chemistry Traceable measurement results in clinical chemistry are mandatory in Europe. Within this framework, measurement methods and materials are evaluated which can serve as the required higher order reference points and which are linked with the SI as closely as possible. Reference and test laboratories in Europe profit from this newly developed system in a fast and efficient way. Bernd Güttler completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Electricity and Magnetism T4.J03 JOSY Next generation of quantum voltage systems for wide range applications The deployment of micro-electronic circuits for measurement and control applications in commercial devices and systems is ever increasing. Such control systems, in combination with state of the art sensors, have enabled large advances in both the performance and efficiency of mass-produced items. For example, electronic management systems in electrical motors have led directly to reduced energy consumption and, as a consequence, improved economy and reduced emissions to the atmosphere. Ralf Behr completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Electricity and Magnetism T4.J04 ULQHE Enabling ultimate metrological Quantum Hall Effect (QHE) devices Since 1990the Quantum Hall Effect (QHE) has been used as the primary reference for the electrical resistance. This physical phenomenon based on quantum electronic properties of a two dimensional conductor in presence of a high magnetic field allows the generation of an electrical resistance, the Hall resistance RH.

iMERA-Plus Health T2.J04 Regenmed Metrology on a cellular scale for regenerative medicine New and innovative forms of therapies, based on stem cells and tissue engineered medical products offer the hope of developing customizable implantable artificial tissue to overcome shortages of transplant organs and revolutionize injury and disease treatment. The project developed internationally accepted measurement technologies and standards to overcome major difficulties such as the scale up from lab to commercial scale production, predicting the long-term behaviour of products and satisfying regulators of the safety of the products.

iMERA-Plus Length T3.J1.1 Nanoparticles Traceable Characterisation of Nanoparticles Ever since the development of nanoparticles in the late 1960's and early 1970's they have been known to act as a bridge between atomic structures and bulk properties. This means they have potentially unique properties, for example as highly concentrated suspensions in the ink industry as drug delivery agents for the pharmaceutical industry, and in novel composite materials. Additional toxicological concerns require strict and well defined standards to be applied. completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Length T3.J1.4 NANOTRACE New Traceability Routes for Nanometrology Dimensional measurements play a crucial role in almost every aspect of modern life where the role of nanotechnologies in Information and Communication Technology is growing. Today laser interferometers are the essential tool for metrology in semiconductor manufacturing where they are used for pattern placement measurements on photomasks and for position control in wafer scanners. The accuracy demands of dimensional measurements are rapidly growing. Marco Pisani completed 2007
