Fundamentals of Metrology

An interactive software package which includes a tutorial and example measurement data has been developed to demonstrate how the deconvolution method can be used to subsequently correct measured ultrasonic signals. This program can also be applied to evaluate one's own measurement data [1]. The intention is to make the technique of signal deconvolution accessible to a broader group of users as a...

Metrology for Economy

PTB has developed a new primary standard for the calibration of gas meters using high-pressure natural gas. In future, the so-called high-pressure comparator will form the top of the traceability chain of the new closed-loop pigsar and, as an integral part of the national traceability chain, will contribute to the reduction of the measurement uncertainty values at the level of dissemination of the...
