The A*STAR’s National Metrology Centre (NMC) is the national measurement institute of Singapore, dedicated to advancing measurement science for an innovative and competitive economy
NMC establishes, develops, maintains and disseminates the national measurement standards traceable to the International System of Units, providing key support to a wide spectrum of industry.
Achieving the nation’s highest level of physical measurement through close collaboration with leading national and international organisation.
With a multidisciplinary team of experienced scientists and engineers and state-of-the-art facilities, NMC provides dedicated services to industry partners to meet their specific needs.
NMC believes in working in close collaboration with industry partners, to create values for them and fuel growth for the industry.
redefinition of the kelvin in terms of the fixed Boltzmann constant has
led to intense activity at many national measurement institutes to
realize detector-based temperature scales with measurements traceable to
the cryogenic radiometer or the electrical watt. This activity has
enabled harmonization of the scales for thermometry and radiometry with a
common traceability route. More importantly, this scale is also used
in remote sensing calibrations of satellite sensors which are used to
monitor global climate change, so that as even as these measurements
improve in the future, the basis of the scale will not change. Effort
is also underway to have a common SI-traceable scale for the
measurements of ground-based total solar irradiance and solar energy as
well. The work being done at National Institute of Standards and
Technology (NIST), USA, in these various areas will be described.
About the presenter
Yoon is a Physicist in the Sensor Science Division at NIST. He is the
US national representative for radiation thermometry on the Consultative
Committee for Thermometry at the BIPM. He received his Ph.D. in
solid-state physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
and his BA from Swarthmore College. He has coauthored over 100
technical publications, mostly in the areas of spectroradiometry and
radiation thermometry. He also has 2 patents in the area of
spectroradiometry. He has twice won the NIST Astin award for measurement
science and was also the recipient of the US Department of Commerce
silver medal for scientific achievement.
