Latest science posters from NPL
- NPL is designing and building, in collaboration with x-ray and neutron large scale facilities around the world, new metrology systems to enable scientists from academia and industry to investigate and understand the coupling phenomena in ferroelectric and magnetoelectric materials.
- The effect of changing calibration traceability for radiation thermometry from the current International Temperature Scale of 1990 (ITS-90) to a proposed SI based scale is investigated in the context of the dissemination of a high temperature scale from national measurement institute to calibration laboratory.
- Both non-destructive and traditional microsectioning techniques have been used to measure the oxide thickness of steam grown oxides between two close contacting surfaces.
- Investigations into measuring fixed points of Aluminium-Indium(Al-In) and Zinc-Bismuth(Zn-Bi) monotectic alloys. The metals were mixed equally by 50% of atomic weight, and placed inside a graphite crucible, which was used to take measurements.
- In this poster we present a method to assess temperature induced changes in the temporal behaviour of pulse power capacitors.
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
