Capabilities: Introduction (1/9)

The Bureau International des Poids at Mesures (BIPM) defines metrology as follows: “Metrology is the science of measurement, embracing both experimental and theoretical determinations at any level of uncertainty in any field of science and technology." (

Faraday Scientific’s skills and experience relates to the instrumentation necessary to carry out measurements, especially the important software component of instrumentation that is needed to control and coordinate the measurement process itself from the initial step of data capture through to data presentation.

The range of physical and chemical properties of a system that are of potential interest, of course, is very large but each of them is related to one or more of a set of seven, independent, fundamental quantities for which standards, and units, are defined, namely: mass (kilogram), length (metre), time (second), electric current (ampere), thermodynamic temperature (kelvin), luminous intensity (candela) and quantity (mole). (

The measurement technique, referred to as an analytical technique in the case of a chemical measurement, is summarised schematically as follows:
