The EPS Edison Volta Prize promotes excellence in research and is given in recognition of outstanding research and achievements in physics. The Prize is given biennially to individuals or groups of up to three people. The laureates receive a medal, which is a faithful reproduction of the Medaglia Premio dell' Associazione per l'Incremento del Commercio in Como: a portrait of Alessandro Volta together with the saying: Alexandro Voltae Novocomensi, i.e. (dedicated) to Alessandro Volta from Novum Comum, which was the old name given to the city of Como by Julius Caesar.

L'heure légale en Belgique est désormais fondée sur le Temps Universel Coordonné (UTC)

Le jeudi 3 mai 2018, une nouvelle loi portant sur l’heure légale en Belgique a été votée à la Chambre, sur base d’un projet fourni par l’Observatoire royal de Belgique. L’heure légale était, selon la loi datant de 1892, l’heure solaire du méridien de Greenwich. Aujourd’hui l’heure légale en Belgique est alignée sur la référence officielle mondiale : le Temps Universel Coordonné (UTC), un temps atomique réalisé par une moyenne d’environ 450 horloges atomiques réparties dans le monde, dont quatre sont à l’Observatoire royal de Belgique. L’heure légale en Belgique sera donc dorénavant à UTC+1h en hiver et à UTC+2h en été. L’Observatoire diffuse une réalisation de l’heure légale via le Network Time Protocol, aux adresses ntp1.oma.be et ntp2.oma.be.

Les journées 2018 comprendront des conférences invitées sur des grands sujets d'actualité comme MICROSCOPE, le deuxième catalogue de GAIA, l'ICRF3 et d'autres. Comme d'habitude, une partie du programme sera également ouverte à des communications proposées par les participants, sur toutes les thématiques du GRAM. Des posters peuvent également être proposés.
Le PN GRAM peut rembourser sur demande une partie de vos frais de mission à concurrence de 240€ sous la forme d’un virement à votre laboratoire après la conférence.
Date limite d'inscription (gratuite mais obligatoire) et pour propositions de contributions : 25 mai 2018.

Workshop on Synchronization and Timing Systems

June 18-21, 2018 at San Jose (CA, USA).
The 27th Annual Workshop on Synchronization and Timing Systems (WSTS), sponsored by NIST and ATIS, is a vendor-neutral technology workshop that will address evolving sync requirements, as well as the roll-out of new sync systems and standards, and how these affect industries and equipment manufacturers.
WSTS represents pre-eminent experts in synchronization for telecom and related applications. Many of these experts participate in various standards bodies including ATIS, ITU, IEEE and IETF.
Accurate time synchronization is an essential driving force in the success of today’s most commonly used technologies. Telecom, Finance, Utilities, Broadcast, Transportation, IoT, and Defense are evolving with critical timing enablers in many of their systems.

ESA Open Invitation to tender "TGVF-X (Time and Geodesy Validation Facility for the eXploitation phase)

The TGVF project is based on developments started in the early 200o, in particular the GSTB-V2 project which intended to support the GIOVE satellites mission with a functional and representative Ground Segment.In 2010, due to the need to support the qualification of the Galileo Ground Mission Segment and noting that Service Facilities had not been put in place, the TGVF IOV was setup to fulfil the Time Service Provider (TSP) and Geodetic Reference Service Providers (GRSP) in the formal In-Orbit-Validation campaigns of the Galileo System leading to IOVR in late 2013. Additionally, the TGVF IOV started the support to the IOT campaigns providing orbit and onboard atomic clocks characterisation.In 2016, the TGVF FOC was developed to participate in the Galileo System Qualification,leading to the FOC1 Qualification.The activities required for the Galileo Exploitation phase that are to be performed by TGVF-X can be summarised as follows:Near real-time KPI Monitoring/Service Notification at ESA level for OS Service ManagementTelemetry and Telecommand Monitoring for Space Segment trend analysis and Radiation Monitoring Support to System Performance/Satellite Troubleshooting and investigation in general. Other activities like current In-Orbit Test support (orbit/clock characterisation) GalileoSystem performance verification and validationMoreover, the TGVF-X shall provide support to Galileo Second Generation and Evolutions Experimentation activities. Furthermore, the TGVF-X shall have an emphasis on Cyber Security.
Submission deadline: 22nd of June 2018.

OFFRES D’EMPLOI

Postdoc Position: Cavity control of rare earth ions

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Karlsruhe, Germany).
We are inviting applications for a two-year Postdoc position in the group of Prof. David Hunger. The group is exploring applications of fiber-based optical microcavities in the fields of solid state quantum optics, optical sensing, microscopy, spectroscopy, and optomechanics. One of the central goals is to enhance light-matter interactions to realize efficient light-matter interfaces at the single quantum level, and to enable novel schemes for spectroscopy and sensing.
The advertised project aims at realizing an efficient optical interface and advanced control for rare earth ions in solids with open-access optical microcavities. Rare earth ions provide exceptional optical and hyperfine coherence, which makes them promising candidates for quantum optical applications, ranging from quantum memories to quantum computing. Building on recent work, we want to develop an extended toolbox for advanced control of ensembles and individual ions.
