Created in 2009 to distinguish researchers in fundamental or applied metrology, the LNE (Laboratoire National de Métrologie et d'Essais) Research Award recognizes those who contribute to the success and scientific reputation of their research activities.
This year's award was presented to Jean-Rémy Filtz, LNE engineer, in charge of the Photonics-Energetics division of the Joint Metrology Laboratory (LNE-CNAM). A major player in the development of metrology in Photometry, Classical and Laser Radiometry, Temperature and Pyrometry (ISYS Platform), Jean-Rémy Filtz has been contributing to the success and national and international renown of his team's work since the early 90s.
At the end of the 90s, in parallel with these activities for French Metrology, he helped to lay the foundations for structured research at LNE in fields related to metrology. In the energy field, he devoted himself to developing methodologies for measuring the energy efficiency of industrial and domestic systems (Lighting, Heating/Cellule CASSIOPEE). It promotes the dissemination of new characterization techniques such as fluxmetry for fire safety engineering and thermography for pollution detection and energy loss measurement.
Since the early 2000s, he has also been working to develop a world-class laboratory dedicated to thermal and optical radiation metrology for the study of materials (Plateforme MATIS). Jean-Rémy Filtz's current work focuses on the development of new metrology capabilities essential to industry and society, to support the expansion of new forms of energy, from production to use, for example: new materials and systems for the solar industry, electronics, automobiles, new LED lighting systems.
