Department 7.4

Temperature is one of the most frequently measured physical quantities. Every year several millions of temperature sensors are newly installed worldwide. The department is engaged in the temperature metrology with contact sensors in the broad range from below 1 mK to above 2200 °C. Fundamental questions like the new definition of the SI base unit kelvin as well as the support of more than 120 accredited calibration laboratories within the DAkkS are part of our tasks.
