Congratulations to Dr Alessandro Rossi from the University of New South Wales who has been awarded the 2015 NMI prize for excellence in measurement research. Dr Rossi has been developing quantum dot-based single electron pump devices (fully fabricated within the ANFF-NSW laboratories) to serve as a metrological standard for electric current. Most recent results have achieved a current greater than 80 pA with an uncertainty of less than 30 parts per million – almost two orders of magnitude better performance than in any other silicon-based implementation.
