9/19/2019RF and microwave measurement uncertainty, Lower Hutt, New ZealandThis course explores practical scenarios for RF measurements of power and impedance while giving insight into the underlying relationship between measurement uncertainty and error.

This course explores practical scenarios for RF measurements of power and impedance while giving insight into the underlying relationship between measurement uncertainty and error. It covers basic notions, with an emphasis on complex quantities. It explains how sources of measurement error are described mathematically, how the associated uncertainty is calculated and how to report the final uncertainty in a measurement result.

Measurement best-practice at radio and microwave frequencies involves quantities that are inherently complex-valued (such as scattering parameters). International guidelines, such as the recent EURAMET calibration guide for vector network analysers (cg-12 version 3), assume familiarity with the measurement uncertainty of complex quantities. This course provides a suitable introduction to such concepts.

Where possible, the course material on the day will be illustrated by examples of interest to attendees.

9/29/20197th Autumn School METTI (Thermal Measurements and Inverse Techniques), Porquerolles Island (Hyères, South of France)Finding causes from measured 'Consequences' using a mathematical model linking the two is an inverse problem. This is met in different areas of physical sciences, especially in Heat Transfer. Techniques for solving inverse problems as well as their applications may seem quite obscure for newcomers to the field. Experimentalists desiring to go beyond traditional data processing techniques for estimating the parameters of a model with the maximum accuracy feel often ill prepared in front of inverse techniques. In order to avoid biases at different levels of this kind of involved task, it seems compulsory that specialists of measurement inversion techniques, modelling techniques and experimental techniques share a wide common culture and language. These exchanges are necessary to take into account the difficulties associated to all these fields. It is in this state of mind that this school is proposed. The METTI Group (Thermal Measurements and Inverse Techniques), which is a division of the French Heat Transfer Society (SFT), has already run or co-organized six similar schools, in the Alps (Aussois, 1995 and 2005), in the Pyrenees (Bolquere-Odeillo, 1999), in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro, 2009), in Bretagne (Roscoff, 2011) and in Pays Basque (Biarritz, 2015b). For this seventh edition the school is again open to participants from the European Community with the support of the Eurotherm Committee.http://iusti.cnrs.fr/metti7/
