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 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.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
