Training courses on temperature standards.

Project Description

Three specialist courses of 4-day duration were programmed to fulfill the training needs originating from the small NMIs. The course will concern the primary standards and methods of the ITS-90.

IMGC (IT), NPL (GB) qnd CNAM (INM (FR) proposed the following courses that will be held in their respective laboratories:

IMGC: Realisation of the ITS-90 by radiation thermometry.

NPL: The calibration of Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometers above 0 °C.

CNAM/INM: Realisation of the ITS-90 in the low temperature range.

Draft programmes of the courses were circulated among the EUROMET NMI's and they were asked for comments and for priority indications. 8 NMIs communicated their interest in the participation.

Further Information

According to the priority indications, the schedule of the courses will be as follows:

IMGC course: 20-23 Sept. 1993, coordinator: T. Ricolfi

NPL course: 11-14 Oct. 1994, coordinator: R. Rusby

CNAM/INM course: 1995
