Final report on supplementary comparison COOMET.PR-S7: Laser power responsivity (COOMET 599/RU/13)

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), USA and the All-Russian Research Institute for Optical and Physical Measurements (VNIIOFI), Russia agreed in February 2013 to conduct a comparison on the laser power responsivity at wavelengths of 532 nm, 1.064 μm and 10.6 μm. The aim of this comparison is to assess the equivalence of the laser power responsivity between two laboratories. The comparison was conducted within the COOMET regional metrological organization (COOMET 599/RU/13) and was registered in the BIPM Key…

Food Safety and Plant-Based Meats

Food Safety and Plant-Based Meats

Plant-based foods have grown in popularity over the past few years, with sales increasing by double digits in 2020. According to Plant Based Foods Association (PBFA), the plant-based food industry is valued at $7 billion with milk as the top seller followed by meat. As the market continues to evolve, so do food safety concerns over the technical challenges of formulating meat alternatives.

MadgeTech Current Data Logger Guide

MadgeTech Current Data Logger Guide

Direct current (DC) power systems are used across many industrial processes and are growing in popularity due to their unidirectional flow. DC power monitoring is essential for determining power quality, consumption, and preventing any power distribution problems that could lead to damage. By analyzing this data, users can identify power disturbances and future trends to prevent failure and maximize cost savings.

7 Ancient Methods of Food Preservation

7 Ancient Methods of Food Preservation

Since the beginning of time, humans had to get creative when it came to survival. Ancient cultures around the world had to harness nature for local food sources while acclimating to the climate. Whether hunting or harvesting, food preservation allowed man to plan ahead and form a food supply. This was not only crucial for survival, but also for putting down roots and establishing communities.

Calibration of diameter standards (EURAMET.L-K4.2015)

At its meeting in October 2014, the EURAMET TC for Length, decided upon a key comparison on the calibration of diameter gauges, named EURAMET.L-K4.2015. Twenty National Metrology Institutes and one Designated Institute from Europe, Asia and South America participated in this comparison, which was carried out in two parallel groups. Twelve laboratories from EURAMET participated in group 1, while ten laboratories from EURAMET and two laboratories from GULFMET and SIM participated in group 2. To provide the link three laboratories, CEM,…
