Presenter:  Patrick Abbott

1 Day Course, Tuesday, April 16, 2019

 

This course will provide information on realization and dissemination of mass after the redefinition of the kilogram is adopted in 2019.  Details will be presented on the motivation for redefining the unit of mass the and the experiments involved in tying the kilogram to an invariant of nature, the Planck constant.  The effect of the redefinition on uncertainties of the NIST mass scale and customer calibrations will also be presented.
