Evolution of the International System of Units, reliability of medical analyses, hydrogen storage, radioactivity measurement, additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence, nanotechnologies. In 2018, the diversity of research topics covered by the LNE, and the French National Metrology Network, testifies to the richness of the projects carried out by the teams.
The year 2018 was a historic year for the world of metrology. Indeed, the definitions of four units of the International System of Measurement: the kilogram, the kelvin, the ampere and the mole, have been modified. A change in definitions made possible in part thanks to the work of the LNE and the Réseau national de la métrologie française.
At the same time, LNE has asserted its position on many emerging and promising topics, such as artificial intelligence, additive manufacturing or nanotechnologies, as well as on societal concerns such as air quality measurements and the reliability of medical analyses.
