Dr. Jaeger has provided outstanding contributions to the field of metrology education and training. Klaus has worked in the field of metrology for over 20 years, developing and improving primary standards using the latest discoveries in atomic and quantum physics. He was the co-author of two NCSLI Recommended Intrinsic Standards Practices (RISPs) and has contributed to numerous NCSLI recommended Practice (RP) documents. Klaus has presented papers on applying intrinsic atomic and quantum calibration standards to industrial calibration laboratories at the Conference for Precision Electromagnetic Measurements (CPEM) in 19988, 1990, and 1996.
Klaus has been an active volunteer in the NCSL for over 24 years, supporting training and educational activities through positions of committee chair, vice president, and President of NCSL International.

Klaus has also served as a member of the review panel for the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences, Board of Assessment for the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Physics Laboratory.
Klaus’s largest contribution to metrology education and training has been in the development of the Tutorials held at the NCSLI annual conference. Klaus has designed, developed and organized all aspects of the NCSLI tutorials, serving as the conference tutorial chair since its inception in 1999. Through the guidance of Dr. Jaeger, in the time period of 2000 though 2006, over 2,100 tutorial attendees have been able to receive training and education through the NCSLI tutorial process. The NCSLI tutorial sessions that Klaus has developed are among the most significant metrology education and training activities in North America.
