Meeting of TC 1.3 "Electricity and Magnetism":

22-24 October 2019, Kishinev, Moldova

Announcement: International Seminar "COOMET Tasks in the Light of the Redefinition of the International System of Units (SI)"

On 3 October 2019 at FGUP "D.I. Mendeleev Institute for Metrology (VNIIM)", Saint Petersburg, Russia, an International seminar "COOMET Tasks in the Light of the Redefinition of the International System of Units (SI)" will be held.


A draft Program of the seminar includes the following reports:

  1. Fundamental physical constants and the new definitions for the SI units (Korzinin E. Yu, VNIIM, Russia);
  2. Fundamental constants from the viewpoint of fundamental physics (Surzhykov A.S., PTB, Germany);
  3. New definition of the kilogram, works on its realization (Chekirda K.V., VNIIM, Russia);
  4. Ensuring the uniformity of temperature measurements according to the new definition of kelvin (S.M. Osadchy, VNIIFTRI, Pokhodun A.I., VNIIM, Russia);
  5. Realization of the unit of electrical current – ampere according to the new definition (Katkov A. S., VNIIM, Russia);
  6. Creating methods for determining isotopic purity of substances as a current task for realization of the unit of amount of substance – mole (Krylov A.I., VNIIM, Russia);
  7. The current status of the work done at VNIIFTRI on the development of an absolute quantum gravimeter (I.Yu. Blinov, M.A. Aleinikov, VNIIFTRI, Russia);
  8. Status and prospects for further work carried out by VNIIFTRI with regard to the new definition for the SI unit of time (the second)  (V.G. Palchikov, VNIIFTRI, Russia);
  9. Principles of candela primary standard development for consistence of base SI units: from classical radiometry to quantum single photon detectors (E.A.Ivashin, VNIIOFI, Russia).

The seminar will be followed by a Roundtable involving the Chairpersons of COOMET Technical Committees and Directors/ representatives of the COOMET NMIs concerned. The tasks of COOMET NMIs and structural bodies, related to the transition to new definition of the SI units, will be discussed during the Roundtable.
