Project Title Contact Notes
Comparison of NIR diffuse reflectance scales Organisation:
National Physical Laboratory, United Kingdom

Contact Person:
Julie Taylor

Phone:
+44 20 89436539

Aim: carry out comparison of diffuse reflectance in the range 800 - 2500 nm, using white, mid grey, dark grey and black spectralon and glossy white tiles. The comparison measurements have been completed and a report is in preparation.
Investigation into the differences between diffuse reflectance measured (by conventional sphere based and goniophotometric tech) Organisation:
National Physical Laboratory, United Kingdom

Contact Person:
Julie Taylor

Phone:
+44 20 89436539

 
Transfer standards for spectrophotometry and colorimetry Organisation:
National Physical Laboratory, United Kingdom

Contact Person:
Chris Chunnilall

Phone:
+44 20 89436872

NPL has developed a range of transfer standards for users in the field of spectrophotometry and colorimetry, and these are available to provide other national standards laboratories (and other users) with traceability to NPL.
Reflectance of diffusing materials Organisation:
Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, Germany

Contact person:
Andreas Hope

Phone:
+49 531 5924191

The facilities of the PTB for the calibration of reflection standards are used to provide the partner NMIs with absolutely calibrated transfer standards traceable to the absolute scale of the radiance factor for standardized geometries at the PTB.
Key-Comparison of Spectral Diffuse Reflectance
(EUROMET.PR-K5)
Organisation:
OMH, Hungary

Contact Person:
Gyula Dezsi

Phone:
+361 45 85984

The comparison is carried out in the spectral range of 360-800 nm by 50 nm steps. The comparison is planned as a star type on white diffuse samples. The pilot laboratory will measure the samples before and after the measurement of participants.
Bilateral comparison of spectral regular transmittance Organisation:
LNE, France

Contact Person:
Jean Bastie

Phone:
+33 140 272025

The aim of this bilateral comparison is to link the spectral regular transmittance measurements carried out by the national metrology institute of Serbia-Montenegro to the EUROMET network in this field of measurements.
Traceability of spectral transmittance Organisation:
Helsinki University of Technology (HUT), Finland

Contact Person:
Farshid Manoocheri

Phone:
+3589 451 2337

Transmittance transfer standards (filters) of Metrosert will be calibrated regularly by HUT in the wavelength range 250mm -
1000 mm
EUROMET key Comparison of spectral regular transmittance Organisation:
LNE, France

Contact Person:
Jean Bastie

Phone:
+33 140 272025

The EUROMET key comparison (EUROMET-K6) on spectral regular transmittance is closely connected with the CCPR key comparison in the same field.
Transmittance measurements on V(lambda) filters Organisation:
SP, Sweden

Contact Person:
Leif Liedquist

Phone:
+46 3316 5448

A filter with a transmittance close to the V(l) function of the CIE photometric standard observer has been circulated between five participating laboratories. The spectral transmittance of the central part of the filter was measured at filter temperature 251 C. The objective of the intercomparison was to confirm the estimated uncertainty (filter part) for each participating laboratory when using a calibrated V(l) filter together with a precision aperture and a silicon trap detector for realization of photometric scales.
Intercomparison of total hemispherical and normal spectral emissivity measurements Organisation:
LNE, France

Contact Person:
Jacques Hameury

Phone:
+33 130 691100

Intercomparison between BNM-LNE and PTB Braunschweig.

 

NMI research projects

These are research projects carried out by national measurement institutes, typically as part of maintaining their national measurement infrastructure.
