Sports Anti-doping Research

The use of banned drugs in sports is becoming increasingly sophisticated and the need to counter this provides a stimulus for ground-breaking analytical research.


Chemical Metrology Research

NMI continually develops new reference methods for chemical measurements and characterises reference materials to act as calibration standards.


Impedance and Resistance Research

Research is underway to develop improved resistance standards based on the the quantum Hall effect at ac, to improve the calibration chain relating resistance to capacitance, and to provide 1 ohm standard resistors of exceptional electrical stability.


Nanometrology Research

Our research activities are aimed at the development of new standards, measurement techniques and calibration services for nanostructures and nanomaterials.


Persistent Organic Pollutants

Our research is focused on establishing persistent organic pollutant levels in humans and the environment, using direct sampling and 'passive' sampling methods to enable extremely low detection limits.


Mass and Related Quantities Research

Research supports the measurement of density, flow, force, hygrometry, mass, pressure, viscometry and volume.


Acoustics, Ultrasound and Vibration Research

NMI develops measurement techniques to assist in the measurement of air and structure born sound and vibration, and develops and implements equipment to provide the highest possible accuracy in a calibration facility.


Length and Related Quantities Research

Research activities are being undertaken to develop improved laser wavelength standards and to provide traceability for coordinate measuring machines.


Low Frequency Electrical and Magnetic Quantities Research

Research is being undertaken to develop improved standards for voltage, power and energy.


Photometry and Radiometry Research

Recent research has concentrated on establishing a cryogenic radiometer as the Australian standard for the candela.
