This service is for designers and developers of low power and high resistance products containing semiconductor chips, insulators and the components up or downstream of these. We offer a flexible and bespoke service, and our experts can give advice if the problem is not a standard calibration or measurement. NPL has unique capability to do femtoamp-level measurements for current and specialists to explain the significance of the measurements.
In addition to the long-standing demand from the power generation industry for well-characterised electrical insulators, growing markets for products such as radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips and medical devices require femtoamp / petaohm characterisation of semiconductor materials. Our research experience developing single-electron current standards means we have the instrumentation and methods to measure small currents traceable to primary standards. If you have a measurement problem related to small electrical currents, charges or high resistance, we would love to hear from you.
