23/10/2019 - Paul Bramley presented with the Callendar Medal

On Wednesday 23rd October, Paul Bramley (Metrosol’s founder) went down to the “hallowed halls” of the Royal Institution in London where he was presented with the Callendar medal by the Institute of Measurement and Control. This is awarded annually for an “outstanding contribution to the art of instruments or measurement” as a result of his work on the development of a practical Johnson noise thermometer.

Paul commented “This is a tremendous honour, for which I can only thank the institute. Although it is an individual award, I must acknowledge that this is a collective effort with invaluable contributions from my colleagues Dr David Cruickshank and Jeremy Gill, John Pickering of Metron Designs as well as the support and assistance from NPL, in particular from Dr Jon Pearce and Dr Jonathan Williams. I enjoy running in my spare time and this project feels a little like running a marathon. What feels strange is that I seem to be receiving a medal at about the 22 mile mark, just as I’m “hitting the wall”! When I pointed this out, I was assured that the selection committee had every confidence the project would be successful, so no pressure then! It was a great evening and after the nervousness of collecting the award I was able to enjoy a fascinating lecture on the redefinition of the kilogram by Dr Ian Robinson”.
