A few weeks ago we visited the National Physics Laboratory (NPL) in Teddington, UK. We were given a tour of the facilities, the graphene labs and met with several key researchers and the business development team. The NPL is the UK’s national measurement institute, and is a world-leading measurement standards institute – and certainly one of the leading institutes in the field of graphene metrology.
The NPL’s facilities are very impressive, it’s a beautiful campus set in the lovely town of Teddington – about half an hour by train from central London. The research facilities and laboratories were very well equipped and we pleasantly surprised to find out how nice and hospitable the researchers were. It was great to see so many graphene related activities at the NPL.
