Summer Course on Metrology on New Frontiers for Metrology: from Biology and Chemistry to Quantum and Data Science

From July 4 to July 13, 2019, the International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi", one of the most significant cultural activities of the Italian Physical Society (Società Italiana di Fisica - SIF), is organising the Summer Course on Metrology "New Frontiers for Metrology: from Biology and Chemistry to Quantum and Data Science".

The Course, intended for PhD students and young post-docs, offers a unique opportunity of meeting for scientists and young physicists from all over the world.

Modules and Topics will be as follows:
I) Physical metrology
The realization of the unit of mass, the Avogadro project, measuring electricity, optical clocks with trapped ions and test of the equivalence principle with optical clocks, time scale for metrology and navigation systems, radiometry, fotometry.
II) Fundamental metrology
Measurement uncertainty, mathematical and statistical tools for time varying quantities, global traceability, big data, metrology at the international stage, the SI, temperature measurements beyond ITS-90.
III) Quality of life
Applications of metrology in chemistry and biology, radiation dosimetry, global temperature measurement, clinical chemistry, atomic weights of the elements, radiactivity metrology, reference materials in chemistry, metrological application of NMR and qNMR in organic analysis.
