Al’manac of Modern Metrology № 4 (16) 2018

The sixteenth issue of the “Almanac of Modern Metrology” (fourth edition of 2018) raises a pressing issue of the day — ensuring the uniformity of measurements in the process of digital transformation of the economy. Coverage of the question is confirmed by the articles placed in the section of the almanac dedicated to the modernization of the reference base.
Section “Fundamental research” starts with an article about measurement of the spectral distribution of optical radiation by acousto-optical spectrometers.
The article from the section “Physical Basis of Metrology” is of undoubted interest which refers to the developed in VNIIFTRI precision method for measuring the electrophysical and thermochemical characteristics of polycrystalline materials, which allowed to establish the dependence of the atomization energy of diamond on its size.
Within the framework of fundamental and applied metrological studies, analysis of methods for developing highly sensitive devices, in particular, for registration of images of ionizing radiation sources is given.
Traditionally there is a heading “Founders of metrological directions”.
