Latest science posters from NPL
- In this work we report the ﬁrst inkjet printed single silicon nanowire ﬁeld eﬀect transistor (NWFET), with the smallest electrode size allowed by drop-on-demand inkjet printing technology of about 30 microns.
- This paper presents a reasonably portable, monochromatic tuneable source that can be configured as a laser beam (as a source of optical power), or as an irradiance or radiance source. In this way it can replace tuneable lasers or monochromator-based sources in many radiometry applications.
- This poster highlights the latest developments at NPL in the multi-scale electrochemical imaging of surfaces decorated with electrocatalyst materials.
- It is increasingly common to determine photometric quantities from integrating spectral measurements made, for example, with an array spectrometer.
- Layered transition metal dichalcogenides constitute one of the most interesting classes of materials. MoS2 is one of the most stable layered metal dichalcogenides.
Ever since opening in 1900, NPL has strived to deliver the highest social and economic impact through world-class measurement science, innovative applied research and knowledge services.
NPL maintains a wide portfolio of internationally visible research programmes that advance measurement science, underpin the SI system of measurement units and support various cross-disciplinary technologies.
Over 500 scientists are employed across almost every discipline, from physicists to biochemists, and mathematicians to materials scientists. These passionate people deliver solutions to a wide range of problems for government, industry and other organisations, often well beyond the scope of measurement science.
Research activities are housed in a state-of-the-art building providing 36,000 m² of custom-designed laboratories and support facilities. This enables the highest precision measurements to be realised, many of which exploit effects at the atomic level.
Collaboration is fundamental to much of NPL's research and scientists work with UK and international universities, as well as with other National Measurement Institutes and companies, from small start-ups to large multi-national corporations.

Science quality at NPL is monitored internally by our Chief Scientist, key scientists, and Knowledge Leaders, and externally via regular visits from the Royal Society and Royal Academy of Engineering
