World Metrology Day 2016 organized by PACMAN at CERN

PACMAN is an Innovative Doctoral Program Network, offering training to 10 Early Stage Researchers hosted by CERN thanks to the European Commission’s FP7 Marie Curie Actions.

On the occasion of World Metrology Day 2016, PACMAN will be organizing an A&T sector seminar at CERN (Geneva), with talks by the coordinator of project, Dr. Hélène Mainaud Durand, and by the Work Packages leaders – Michele Modena, Prof. Stephan Russenschuck and Manfred Wendt – who will present the project and will give an account of the results achieved by the ESRs during their training.

The technical objective of the PACMAN project is to develop very high accuracy metrology and alignment tools and validate them in a single automatic test stand integrating all of them. This multidisciplinary research project strengthens the co-operation between the most innovative universities, laboratories and industries.

PACMAN aims to develop new sensors, improve the already existent hardware and methodology for alignment measurements and metrology, and integrate them into an industrial environment.
