About the Project

SI-traceable thermometry

You will be part of a new research area for the UK, namely making absolute and traceable measurements of temperature using optical measurements of the Doppler broadening of an atomic transition. The aim is to scale to practical (~mm sized) sensors using miniature optical cells filled with appropriate atomic/molecular species.

This project is in conjunction with external collaborative partner Graham Machin at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL).
