This project aims to meet current and emerging needs in the field of angle measurement (new, more accurate angle encoders, alignment of scientific equipment in particle accelerators, in situ calibrations with increasingly low uncertainties, etc.).
This project aims to develop metrological tools to study the coupling between thermal, mechanical and electrical phenomena in piezoelectric and electrocaloric materials at high temperature and under high electric field.
The stability of atomic clocks operating in the optical domain is currently limited by two factors: the frequency noise of the laser used to probe the atomic system and the quantum projection noise, which intervenes when the state of this system is detected. This European QESOCAS project addresses these factors that limit uncertainties at the 10-18 level. These studies could have an impact on most clock applications and open the possibility of new applications.
The electrical grid is currently undergoing profound changes throughout the world. Indeed, the current supply networks, which are centralised and incorporate a large share of fossil fuel power plants, must migrate towards an increased integration of renewable energy sources (RES).
Ce projet européen aborde un des grands défis qu’est l'énergie de demain en visant le développement de nouvelles technologies, de nouveaux équipements et les moyens de mesures métrologiques appropriés pour exploiter de nouvelles sources d'énergie. Il aborde spécifiquement la métrologie pour les technologies de récupération d'énergie.
This project aims to develop new advanced techniques to improve the traceability of the current definition of the kelvin, before the redefinition of 2018. Establish traceability to the SI according to the new definition, in order to support the widest and simplest dissemination of the temperature unit to end users.
This project aims to extend the range of force measurements above 15 MN, consolidate the uncertainties of force measurements with force pyramid benches and improve the calibration control of multi-component sensors.
