Current interests

Stephen Giblin

Stephen Giblin's recent research has been into the ac quantum Hall effect as a possible primary impedance standard, novel semiconductors for higher-temperature quantum Hall effect measurements, ac impedance bridges and cryogenic current comparator development.


Stephen studied physics at Bristol University, receiving a PhD in experimental solid-state physics in 1997.

His thesis research was on magnetic properties of the then very new mercury-based high temperature superconductors.

He joined NPL in 1997, and has worked since then on single-electron transport in metallic, semi conducting and superconducting nano-structures. In addition, Stephen has worked on many projects related to quantum electrical metrology and precise measurement of electrical quantities.
