NPL trains NASA scientists

Two NPL temperature scientists, Michael de Podesta and Jonathan Pearce, recently delivered a training course on temperature measurement to experienced scientists and engineers at NASA.

The course covered the basic concepts of temperature measurement, thermocouples, contact and non-contact sensors, as well as the application of the latest innovations.

The NPL duo shared experiences of the measurement problems they, and their colleagues in the NPL Temperature team, have faced and how these might relate to similar challenges faced by NASA engineers and scientists across materials processing, aerospace and space applications.

The NPL temperature team has vast experience in solving many types of temperature measurement challenges in a variety of environments and carries out world leading research and development into innovations such as driftless or self-calibrating high temperature sensors.

The fact that NASA chose to come to NPL for temperature training reflects this experience and the team's reputation.

NPL also carries out work for the European Space Agency (ESA). Recent projects include identifying nanomaterials to be used in space and making traceable earth observations from satellites
