QUANTUM-BASED PRESSURE AND VACUUM MEASUREMENTS AND NIST ON A CHIP
08/06/2021 - 15:16 CET
In this webinar you will learn about measurements, standards and a bit of history leading up to now.
The presenter, Dr Jay Hendricks, will describe the role of NIST as a national metrology institute, talk about the NIST on a Chip program, a daring and innovative approach that seeks to utilize fundamental physics to develop quantum-based sensors and standards, and then take a slightly deeper dive into research developing new measurement methods of pressure and vacuum that are photonically quantum-based.
Finally, he will speak on how science and research are done at a government lab such as NIST and talk about the types of partnership opportunities that NIST can offer for researchers, students and private companies.
The Webinar is organized with the participation of IUVSTA and IOP, consequently the streaming will be visible for the moment on the latter's website
Dr Jay Hendricks is a world-class expert in low pressure and vacuum metrology and serves as the deputy program manager for NIST on a Chip (NOAC), an innovative approach that seeks to utilize fundamental physics to develop quantum-based sensors and standards. He serves as the scientific director of IUVSTA (International Union of Vacuum Science, Technique and Application) an organization representing more than 15,000 physicists, chemists, materials scientists, engineers and technologists linked by their common study and use of vacuum science.
Dr Hendricks received a PhD and MA and in physical chemistry from Johns Hopkins University, and his BS in chemistry from Penn State University. He has 30+ years of vacuum science and technology experience and has authored more than 60 papers. He is a two-time winner of the US Department of Commerce Gold Medal, one of which was for an innovative quantum-based pressure standard.
Dr Hendricks has demonstrated leadership and chairs national and international vacuum standards meetings and symposia. He currently serves as the scientific director of IUVSTA, chair of IMEKO TC16, and is active with the AVS Recommended Practices Committee, and AVS Publication Committee.
