This year's 22 lectures incorporate new areas of development in metrology, such as nanotechnology, quantum information and quantum devices, biology and medicine, food, surface quality ionizing radiation for health, environment, arts and archaeology, and climate. They pay particular attention to determining physical constants that are directly involved in the anticipated new definitions of the SI units of measurement, which will be based on fixed values to be assigned to fundamental constants. Among the topics are frequency instability, accurate radiometry from space as an essential tool for climate studies, metrological traceability in ionizing radiation measurements for radiotherapy and radiation protection, temperature metrology and the Boltzmann constant, and microwave clocks and fountains.
