Behind-the-scenes @ the Quantum Metrology Institute, National Physical Laboratory
The Quantum Metrology Institute brings together the National Physical Laboratory’s leading-edge quantum science and metrology research, providing the expertise and facilities needed for academia and industry to test, validate, and ultimately commercialise new quantum research and technologies.
The host for this visit is part of the Executive team - NPL’s Chief Scientist, Dr Jan-Theodoor (JT) Janssen.
In this role Dr Janssen is responsible for the external scientific engagements with academia and other government organisations. Internally, he is responsible for the quality and benchmarking of the research outputs of the laboratory and its knowledge management. JT is also the UK delegate for EURAMET the European Association of National Metrology Institutes.
Excellent science is at the heart of NPL's activities – driving innovation, supporting industry and improving quality of life, both for the UK and internationally. They maintain a wide portfolio of internationally-visible research programmes that advance measurement science, underpin the SI system of measurement units and support cross-disciplinary technologies.
They deliver solutions with the potential to provide major social and economic benefits across advanced manufacturing, digital, energy and environment, and life sciences and health. Their research knowledge on metrology and measurement allows technological innovation and forges a stronger link between laboratory and market.
