The Metrology lectures focus on the basics of legal and practical metrology of fundamental quantities. Traceability chains, metrological terminology and principles of etalons are presented. Attention is paid to the modern trends in metrology as well as to the history of metrology. In the laboratory exercises, the students get acquainted with calibration and traceability chain in metrology of selected fundamental quantities (mass, pressure, temperature, electric resistance) as well as with accuracy methodology and protection against interference in metrology of electric quantities.
Aim of the course -
Last update: TAJ444 (16.12.2013)

Students will be able to orientate themselves move in legal metrology of the Czech Republic and will understand the function of metrology system in the Czech Republic to ensure continuity measurement, calibration and verification of measuring instruments. They acquire knowledge of basic approaches to calibration and uncertainty estimation methods.
