Abstract

As the theme of this year''s International Dimensional Metrology Workshop is Dimensional Metrology - Precision Measurements in the New Millennium, it is interesting to consider the pervasiveness of dimensional metrology in our industrial society. Aspects of dimensional metrology enable an extraordinary array of scientific and technical achievements and capability. This paper presents (1) several notable examples of metrology that will impact the 21s.t century, (2) briefly examines the state and predictions for technology at the turn of the last century and (3) suggests some future directions and predictions for dimensional metrology in the 21st century.
