The new International System of Units may let us select an integer value for Avogadro's number. Some might prefer an integer that's divisible by 12, so that an integer number of $^{12}C$ atoms may be associated (to first order) with a gram's mass. For educational and practical reasons it may also help to choose a {\em physically-meaningful} definition within measurement error of the current numeric value. Cubes of diamond face-centered-cubic Si and (much rarer) face-centered-cubic C have been…

Molar standards & information units in the 'new-SI'
In a 2015 paper, Mohr and Phillips point out practical ambiguities associated with the treatment of dimensionless units in the SI, with an eye toward helping scientists to address these in the
Stepwise redefinition of the SI base units
The four SI base units are proposed to be redefined in two stages: first, the kilogram, mole and ampere should be defined, and then the kelvin. To realize the redefinition of a base unit of the SI in
Quantum gravitational applications of nuclear, atomic and astrophysical phenomena
By following the old concept of “gravity is having a strong coupling at nuclear scale” and considering the ‘reduced Planck’s constant’ as a characteristic quantum gravitational constant, in this
