Webinar on Infrared Thermometers
date 2020-07-02 file



Infrared Thermometers are widely used in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The National Institute of Metrology (NIM) China proposed to hold a webinar for colleagues in the metrology community to exchange ideas and experience in using infrared thermometry for public health challenges. This initiative has received support from CIPM CCT and APMP TCT & DEC. We welcome metrologists from the Asia Pacific region and worldwide working in this field, as well as guests from industries, to join the webinar. Hopefully the webinar will promote the work on infrared thermometry and create more opportunities for future collaboration.
