Wes Tew

Weston Tew has been working in the areas of thermal and electrical metrology since 1980. He has experience in precision electrical measurements, mass metrology, low temperature thermometry, noise thermometry, and industrial thermometry and is an author of more than 50 papers on these subjects. Dr. Tew is a member the International Electrotechnical Commission, Working Group 5 on Temperature Sensors of the subcommitee 65B. He is also a member of: the American Society for Testing and Materials; the International Society for Automation; The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers; and the American Physical Society. He has been a staff physicist in the NIST process measurements division since 1993 where he is responsible for cryogenic resistance thermometer calibrations and maintenance of the ITS-90 below 84 K. His research interests are in resistance thermometry, Johnson noise temperature determinations, gas-based fixed points, and solid-state device physics.
