Workshop “Use-cases from quantum technologies for sensing and metrology”December 10-11, 2018. Institut Néel (Grenoble, France).A first of his kind, the workshop “Use-cases from quantum technologies for sensing and metrology” 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 […]

Conférence-débat : Le nouveau système international d’unités (SI) fondé sur un choix de constantes physiques fondamentalesAcadémie des Sciences, 4 décembre 2018L’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 […]
