John Gallop

Senior NPL Fellow

John Gallop is an Emeritus Senior Fellow in Quantum Metrology and Nanoscience. John Gallop joined NPL in 1969 following a DPhil in ultra-low temperature physics at Oxford University. He worked on metrology applications of macroscopic quantum aspects of superconductivity (involving fundamental constant determinations, SQUIDs and high frequency applications) for a number of years.

Later, he spent more than a decade on research into the applications of high-temperature superconductivity.

John  has written over 200 papers and was head of the Quantum Detection Group until retirement in 2003. John is also a visiting professor at Imperial College and a Fellow of the Institute of Physics.

Current interests


John is currently researching developments in nanoscience, including:

  • Transport properties of graphene and carbon nanotubes
  • Single particle measurements with nanoSQUID
  • Sub-micron Hall sensors
  • The metrology of nanoelectromechanical (NEMS) resonators
