NPL can supply, with proven stability and reproducibility, high temperature fixed points (HTFPs) which are based on the melting temperature of a metal-carbon alloy.
NPL can supply a range of fully certified, primary and secondary fixed-point blackbody sources for realising the ITS-90.
Customer blackbody sources may be evaluated by comparison with an NPL standard source using either an infrared radiometer or a suite of transfer standard radiation thermometers operating at wavelengths from 0.65 µm to 14 μm.
We are improving techniques for reliable temperature measurement in harsh environments, including using thermographic phosphors and fibre-optics
This workshop will gather specialists in thermophysical properties measurements, material developers and designers of thermal management systems in UK advanced manufacturing sectors
NPL is developing new, reliable techniques using direct temperature measurement, optical fibres and thermal imaging.
Gavin’s research interests include laser Rayleigh scattering thermometry in flames and emissivity free, background independent non-contact phosphor thermometry.
NPL can supply sources to enable radiation thermometer calibration to be performed at a range of temperatures, whilst maintaining ITS-90 traceability.
