This project aims to establish traceability to the SI for 3 electrical measurement quantities; (i) S parameters, (ii) power and (iii) complex permittivity of dielectric materials, at millimetre-wave and terahertz (THz) frequencies. Such traceability is important for many emerging applications, exploiting communications and electronics technologies – e.g. 5th Generation mobile networks (5G), the Internet of Things (IoT), Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs), space-borne radiometers for Earth remote sensing, and security imaging, etc.
The goal of this project is to support such emerging application and enable European NMIs to provide traceability to the SI for these 3 parameters in the millimetre-wave and THz part of the spectrum, which will be beneficial to end-users.
The rollout of 5G networks and large-scale deployments of cellular IoT will lead to fundamental changes to our society, impacting not only consumer services but also industries embarking on digital transformations.
