iMERA-Plus Electricity and Magnetism T4.J01 Power & Energy Next generation of power and energy measuring techniques Society demands electricity supplies that are secure, sustainable and of high quality. In the next decade, Europe is facing potential energy shortages as oil and gas supplies run down and nuclear power facilities age. Pressure to reduce the green house gas emissions will lead to a requirement for more renewable energy generation, efficient appliances, energy management and improved electricity distribution efficiencies. Commerce will demand an electricity supply of the highest quality, free from momentary voltage interruptions or interference sources. Paul Wright 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 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. Félicien Schopfer completed 2007
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
