Metrologia is an international journal dealing with the scientific aspects of metrology. It has been running since 1965 and has been published by the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) since 1991. Since 2003 the journal has been published by Institute of Physics Publishing on behalf of the BIPM. Metrologia covers the fundamentals of measurements, in particular those dealing with the 7 base units of the International System of Units (meter, kilogram, second, ampere, Kelvin, candela, mole) or proposals to replace them. The editor is J. H. Williams at the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures, Sèvres, France. The journal had an Impact factor of 1.684 for 2010 according to Journal Citation Reports. It is indexed in ISI, Scopus, Inspec, Chemical Abstracts Service, Compendex, GeoRef, NASA Astrophysics Data System, and VINITI Abstracts Journal (Referativnyi Zhurnal).

Measuring the greenhouse effect accurately

Solar radiation enters the Earth's atmosphere without any hindrance and should normally leave it as heat. Unfortunately, this is impeded by the thickening "greenhouse roof" consisting of carbon dioxide and other gases.

Fourth-generation wire micrometer that rivals best in the world

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a dramatically improved laser-based instrument that measures the diameter of fine-gauge wires, fibers and other objects only about three ...

Time transfer performance of BDS-3 satellites improved

Time transfer technology based on navigation satellites started in the 1980s. The conventional common view (CV), all-in-view (AV) and precise point positioning (PPP) time comparison methods based on global navigation satellite ...

Counting photons is now routine enough to need standards

Since the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) built its first superconducting devices for counting photons (the smallest units of light) in the 1990s, these once-rare detectors have become popular research ...

Study suggests universal method for measuring light power

Always on the lookout for better ways to measure all kinds of things, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have published a detailed study suggesting an "elegant" improved definition for ...

Scientists update four key fundamental constants

Paving the way for transforming the world's measurement system, an international task force has determined updated values for four fundamental constants of nature. The updated values comprise the last scientific piece of ...
