NPL – the National Physical Laboratory – has developed a unique system allows transport measurements under highly-controlled environments, enabling environmentally specific graphene characterisation. In summary, this system offers the following services: Magneto-transport measurements of patterned and un-patterned samples; Operation in ambient and vacuum (P≈10-7 mbar) conditions; Four gases dilution down to 5 ppb; Humidity ranges 0–90%; Heating… Read More


INRiM – Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica – is developing an experimental set-up for electrical resistance tomography (ERT). The system, placed in an electromagnetic shielded environment at constant temperature, performs series of four-terminal trans-resistance measurements in different contact configurations by means of a current source, a voltmeter and a reed-relay switch unit.… Read More
