A collaboration between BCIT and UBC has created the world’s first atom-based pressure standard. This standard, which relies on the Heisenberg Uncertainty principle, is a true quantum-based sensor. The applications of this BCIT patented technology include improving satellite performance and semiconductor processing — both multi-billion dollar industries. This breakthrough has placed BCIT/UBC at the forefront of pressure and flux metrology.
