Physics Seminar : Temperature Measurement Research at NPL Other events...
I will be talking about the NPL's efforts and outlook for the next few years in determining the Boltzmann constant (k) with ~1 part-per-million uncertainty using a resonant acoustic method. This may be of particular interest to some people in Physics as there is currently a measurement of k in progress in the basement performed using a completely different method. Prof. Machin will also be talking about developments in thermometry at high temperatures (>1000 C) using thermocouples and self-validating techniques for extreme environments.
Speaker(s) Prof. Graham Machin, Head of Temperature Standards, National Physical Laboratory (NPL), UK
