Commissioned by the Government Laboratory of Hong Kong, VSL has built high accurate facilities for the gravimetric preparation of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) standards. They enable the chemistry team in Hong Kong to produce traceable liquid and gas reference materials for the calibration of

Why are reactive gases measurements a huge challenge?

02/27/2018

In the last decades sensitive analytical techniques have become available for measuring reactive gases in air even at part-per-billions levels. However, less progress has been made in developing materials compatible with those gases.

Sub-millikelvin traceability for water calorimeter
