AUTOUR DE LA REDÉFINITION DES UNITÉS

Fête de la Science : « les idées reçues autour de la mesure »

13 octobre 2018 au LNE (Paris, France).
Pour cette nouvelle édition de la Fête de la Science (du 6 au 14 octobre 2018) placée sous le thème des « idées reçues », ingénieurs, techniciens et chercheurs des laboratoires de métrologie, dont le LNE, se mobilisent pour faire découvrir au grand public la science de la mesure et les métiers de ceux qui les font.
Année exceptionnelle pour l'ensemble de la communauté des métrologues, 2018 sera marquée par la redéfinition des unités de base du Système international d'unités (SI). Un changement majeur qui suscite bien des idées reçues et des amalgames…
À cette occasion, le LNE proposera des ateliers et des présentations pour donner des clés de compréhension sur les véritables implications et conséquences de ces redéfinitions.
Au programme : Les sept unités de base du SI ; Un jeu des sept familles ; Métrologie de l'apparence ; Venez avec votre double décimètre ! ; Vous avez dit incertitude ? ; Mesure de l'infiniment petit ; Qualité de l'air ; Mesurer les grandes distances ; Mesure de l'activité ; Dosimétrie ; Métrologie légale ; Alcoolémie / Ethylométrie ; Environnement.

« Sur mesure, les 7 unités du monde »

Du 16 octobre 2018 au 5 mai 2019 au Musée des Arts et Métiers, CNAM (Paris, France).
Aujourd'hui, 7 unités universelles et fondamentales permettent de quantifier notre monde. L’exposition « Sur mesure, les 7 unités du monde » explore le thème de la mesure sous toutes ses coutures. De tout temps, l’homme a cherché à mesurer ou à se mesurer. Horloge, balance, sablier, sextant, gyroscope, thermomètre… Les instruments anciens et contemporains, en passant par ceux du quotidien, en sont les témoins.
Construite en partenariat avec le Laboratoire national de métrologie et d'essais (LNE), cette exposition fait écho à un événement majeur qui aura lieu à l'automne 2018 : la redéfinition de quatre des sept unités de base, le kilogramme, l'ampère, le kelvin et la mole.

Colloque pluridisciplinaire « Tous mesureurs, tous mesurés. La science au cœur de la société »

18-19 octobre 2018 au siège du CNRS (Paris, France).
Le système international d'unités de mesure achève cette année une profonde refonte : 4 des 7 unités fondamentales — la masse (le kilogramme), la mole, le Kelvin et l'Ampère — sont redéfinies, sur la base de constantes fondamentales et non plus matérielles, comme l'ensemble des unités aujourd'hui. Cela signifie notamment que le kilogramme ne sera plus défini à partir d'un étalon matériel, le fameux kilo étalon conservé au Pavillon de Breteuil à Sèvres.
Cette profonde évolution répond aujourd'hui à un vœu qui ne date pas d'hier, mais bien de la Révolution française à un moment où le souhait de faire advenir « des mesures pour tous en tout temps et en tout lieu » a été formulé… Ce processus s'appuie sur l'établissement d'une convention internationale entre pas moins de 58 Etats. Le point d'orgue et la validation de cette redéfinition majeure des unités de mesure est la 26ème Conférence Générale des poids et mesures qui se tiendra en novembre prochain à Versailles.

Conférence-débat : « Le nouveau système international d’unités (SI) fondé sur un choix de constantes physiques fondamentales »

4 décembre 2018 à l’Académie des Sciences (Paris, France).
L’émergence d’une métrologie quantique a permis de rattacher toutes les unités de base à des constantes fondamentales de la physique. Un nouveau système d’unités a donc été proposé à la Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures de novembre 2018 qui supprime en particulier le kilogramme étalon matériel des unités de base. Cette évolution permet de garantir une universalité, une pérennité et une meilleure reproductibilité des mesures. Le choix des constantes va assurer une cohérence au nouveau système fondé essentiellement sur les progrès de l’interférométrie atomique et de la métrologie électrique quantique. Les développements de ces disciplines et leurs applications en métrologie seront discutés au cours de cette séance.

MWP 2018 – International Topical Meeting on Microwave Photonics

October 22-25, 2018 in Toulouse (France).
Microwave Photonics (MWP) is an inter-disciplinary field of research that deals with the interactions between microwave and optical waves for the generation, processing, control and distribution of microwave, millimeter-wave and THz-frequency signals. Microwave photonics is currently used in a wide variety of applications such as antenna remoting, optically-controlled phased-array antennas, optical processing of microwave signals and millimeter wave and THz signal generation. It enables new microwave functions such as fast spectrum analysis, low-phase-noise microwave and millimeter wave generation, high-frequency conversion, long true-time delay, probing and control of microwave devices and ultra-fast analog-to-digital converters. Conversely, microwave techniques enable new optical communication systems, with faster modulation and detection devices.
This conference receives the technical sponsorship of IEEE Photonics Society and IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society.

ITSF 2018 – Frequency & Time for F.U.N: Finance, Utilities & 5G Networks

November 5-8, 2018 in Bucharest (Romania).
A unique annual opportunity for network operators, standards organisations, end users and vendors to meet and discuss future requirements, challenges and solutions in a forum that attracts world experts in this field.
At the recent meeting of the Steering Group for ITSF 2018 the committee recognised the growing importance of precise time and frequency across multiple vertical markets. Under the heading of 'Time as key enabler for SMART infrastructures’ they are keen to identify expert keynote speakers in the following sectors:
  • Telecoms: For telecoms networks, especially the forthcoming 5G mobile networks, accurate phase/time sync is fundamental to their operation. For some applications the accuracy required will be an order of magnitude tighter than for existing 4G infrastructure.
  • Financial Markets: With MiFID II placing much tighter requirements on time stamping accuracy and traceability to UTC, transmitting reliable time sync to the exchange and achieving deterministic time through the software stacks is critical and challenging.
  • Power Utilities: Precise timing of an electrical anomaly as it propagates through a grid can assist engineers in tracing the exact location of a power line break. Precise frequency allows greater feed in efficient to the grid from the growing number of micro and macro suppliers. Both use cases are driving a major overhall of time and frequency reference precision in the Smart Grid.
  • Broadcast: Accurate time sync is essential for the user perception in linking combined broadcasts from multiple and diverse locations as well as delivering time stamping for fundamental audio and video component sync.
  • Autonomous Vehicles: The move towards autonomous vehicles with detailed knowledge of their surroundings and in particular precise location relative to roadside beacons is going to require time of flight measurement accuracy of a few microseconds or better.
Attending ITSF will ensure you keep you up to date with the latest time and time transfer technologies and techniques relevant to critical infrastructure and emerging applications. The conference is preceded by a Tutorial day, open to all, led by synchronisation experts from around the world and from a range of disciplines.

Workshop "Use-cases from quantum technologies for sensing and metrology"

December 10-11, 2018 at Institut Néel (Grenoble, France).
A first of his kind, this workshop aims to explore the use-cases from quantum technologies for sensing and metrology applications. The chosen method is based on a prospective analysis associating quantum technology experts, and technology prescribers in their field (research, industry or market), able to define the relevant performances, needs and ultimately markets.
Six technology areas will be considered, covering both use cases in research (may involve high-tech industry, or academia), where the highest performances are targeted, where the market sizes can be small and the cost may play a secondary role, and use cases for the end-user, where the typical market sizes are very large, the costs have to be low and the device sizes have (often) to be small. These areas are:

  • Quantum enhanced magnetometry
  • Gravimeters
  • Detecting microwave radiations, and applications
  • Detecting radiation at single photon level, and applications
  • Time references
  • Quantum enhanced interferometry, and applications
Be at the forefront of thinking about the impact of quantum technologies on sensors and metrology!

ESA Open Invitation to tender "Optical technologies for next generation optical inter-satellite links"

The objectives of this study are: 1) To investigate end-to-end communications system architectures for next generation optical inter-satellite links (optical ISLs) and to establish the system requirements. 2) To perform a preliminary design of the optical terminals for next generation optical ISLs achieving a user data rate of 10 20 Gbit/s. 3) To identify the critical subunits of the optical terminals for next generation optical ISLs, define the associated performance requirements, identify technology gaps and establish a technology development roadmap to support next generation inter-satellite links.
Targeted Improvements: System and sub-system performance requirements for the next generation of optical inter-satellite links and a development roadmap for the critical enabling technologies.Description:Optical inter-satellite links have recently been demonstrated in orbit, offering a user data rate of 1.8Gbit/s. This data rate is compatible with current user needs (e.g., TanDEM-X requiring ~1 Tbit/day; Sentinel-1 requiring ~10 Tbit/day). However, to support data retrieval and repatriation for future earth observation satellites with increased instrument performance (e.g., spatial resolution, temporal sampling, multispectral/hyperspectral remote sensing, wide field of view), it is forecasted that the user data rate needs to be boosted by at least one order of magnitude (i.e. 10 20 Gbit/s).The number of users to be served(earth observation satellites, unmanned aerial vehicles) is also expected to increase, which will require, in additional to an increase of the user data rate of the optical return service, a reduction of the time required to establish communications (e.g. minimisere-pointing time and link acquisition time) in order to maximise the overall data throughput. This activity aims to establish thesystem and sub-system performance requirements for the next generation of optical inter-satellite links (GEO-LEO, GEO-GEO) and to establish a development roadmap for the critical enabling technologies, taking into account the aspects outlined above and the expectations of commercial end users.
Submission deadline: 30/11/2018.
