Created in 2009 to distinguish researchers in basic or applied metrology, the LNE (National Laboratory of Metrology and Essays) research awards those who contribute to the success and scientific reputation of their research activities.
This year it was awarded to Jean-Rémy Filtz, Engineer at the LNE, head of the Photonics-Energy division at the Joint Laboratory of Metrology (LNE-CNAM). A major player in the development of metrology in Photometry, Classical Radiometry and Laser, Temperature and Pyrometry (ISYS Platform), Jean-Rémy Filtz has been contributing since the early 1990s to the national and international success and fame of his team's work.
In parallel to these activities within the framework of the French Metrology, he participated, in the late 1990s, in the foundations of a structured research at the LNE in the fields related to metrology. In the energy field, he is dedicated to the development of methodologies for measuring the energy efficiency of industrial or domestic systems (Lighting, Heating/CASSIOPEE Cell). It promotes the dissemination of new characterization techniques such as flow for fire safety engineering and thermography for pollution detection and measurement of energy losses.
Since the early 2000s, he has also been working on the development of a world-class laboratory dedicated to thermal metrology and optical radiation for the study of materials (MATIS Platform). The current work of Jean-Rémy Filtz's cluster concerns the development of new metrology capabilities essential to industry and society, to support the development of new forms of energy, from production to use, for example: new materials and systems for the solar industry, electronics, automotive, new LED lighting systems.
