Der Werner-von-Siemens-Ring, der die Lebensleistung bedeutender Ingenieure würdigt, bildet diesmal gleich zwei Zukunftsfelder ab: Mobilität und Digitalisierung. Auf ihren jeweiligen Gebieten gehören die Preisträger zu den ganz Großen ihres Fachs. Joachim Milberg als BMW-Chef und Hasso Plattner als Gründer von SAP haben den Wirtschaftsstandort Deutschland entscheidend geprägt. Und was der Jury mindestens ebenso wichtig war: Beide haben mit einer Fülle von Ideen immer wieder Brücken gebaut – zwischen Wissenschaft und Forschung, Industrie und Politik.

Einzelphotonenquellen sind vielversprechende Kandidaten als Standardquelle für die Radiometrie. Ziel ist es, solche Quellen für die effiziente Kalibrierung der Detektionseffizienz von Einzelphotonendetektoren zu nutzen, da ihre Photonenstatistik keinen Einfluss auf das Kalibriersignal hat. Momentan werden hierfür noch stark abgeschwächte Laser verwendet, welche eine gewisse Wahrscheinlichkeit zur Multi-Photon-Emission besitzen und die Messung daher korrigiert werden muss. Die Verwendung einer puren Einzelphotonenquelle würde eine solche Korrektur der Messung unnötig machen und das Messunsicherheitsbudget verringern.

PTB cooperates in various ways in the field of research and teaching with national and international universities. Together with partner universities, student work (undergraduate and graduate studies, Bachelor's and Master's theses, internships) is assigned within PTB's broad field of activity. Thus, tomorrow's staff members can already become familiar with the metrological field of work in the broadest sense at a very early stage of their career and work on challenging questions.
