Bajram Zeqiri joined NPL in 1984, following the completion of a PhD in solid-state chemistry at the University of Kent. His work at NPL has seen him contribute to the development of ultrasonic measurement techniques and standards, including: determination of the acoustic properties of materials; calibration and the use of ultrasonic hydrophones; and characterisation of ultrasonic power along with the development of standards for physiotherapy equipment.
Bajram is a member of IEC Technical Committee 87, as Convenor of Working Group 3, and he is the author of almost 70 scientific papers, including three book chapters. In 2003, one of these publications, describing the NPL cavitation sensor, won the prestigious IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control Outstanding paper award. He has published or filed five patents relating to novel developments in ultrasonic metrology.
Bajram is the Lead Scientist for the Ultrasound area in the NPL Acoustics group. His current research interests relate to a number of areas of ultrasound metrology, in particular the development of: hydrophone calibration techniques; measurement methods for acoustic cavitation applied to its industrial applications; novel acoustic materials and their characterisation; sensitive methods of measuring ultrasound power and acoustic intensity; and phase-insensitive imaging and characterisation techniques for inhomogeneous media relevant to clinical imaging.
Bajram is a Member of the Institute of Physics.
