Calibration standards and equipment
Accurate measurements can only be made by using well-calibrated equipment. Calibration standards are essential tools for experimentalists at the Department of Applied Physics.
Here are some of the calibration standards that are being at used by the various research groups at the Department of Applied Physics. Click on the group names for more information. Do not borrow a calibration standard without a permission from the group which is storing it.
