Some of our notable scientists
- Alan Turnbull’s world-leading expertise in corrosion has been further recognised by winning the Willis Rodney Whitney Award from NACE International. Alan was key in NPL becoming one of only two suppliers to a major oil company for their Inherently Reliability Facilities flagship programme.
- Graham Machin, one of the world's top temperature measurement scientists, contributed to and co-edited a major two-volume work entitled 'Radiometric temperature measurement'. Graham has a great passion for his subject and for good measurement practice in general and was recently made a visiting professor at the University of Glamorgan in addition to his visiting professorship at the University of Valladolid, Spain.
- Ling Hao was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Physics. Ling is leading work on applications of nanoscience, superconducting electronics and microwave technology for precision measurements, aimed at single particle measurements and metrology with nanoSQUIDs and nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS) resonators. In addition to this, Ling researches low dimensional carbon, including carbon nanotubes and graphene.
- The Times science magazine 'Eureka' had a feature on 'the fifteen most pressing problems of our time'. Rod Robinson, Principal Research Scientist in NPL's Environmental Measurement group, was interviewed for his role in carbon measurement and placing carbon trading on a firm footing.
