Linear calibration of axial load fatigue testing machines (NT TR 579)

NT TR 579

  • A method of linear calibration of axial load fatigue testing machines is proposed. It is built on the understanding obtained from a vibration analysis of the force transfer function from the load cell of the machine to a fabricated calibration bar. The results have been successfully verified on a commercial testing machine installed at SP in Borås.

Calibration procedures for atomic force microscopes (NT TR 536)

NT TR 536

  • More than 8 years of research in calibration of atomic force microscopes (AFM) has been condensed in to two procedures for calibration of metrology grade AFM instruments. The greatest success of the project is that DFM in September 2002 has - as one of the first laboratories in the world - successfully passed a technical assessment for using one of these procedures for accredited (i.e. traceable) AFM measurements.

Traceable calibration and uncertainty of measurements in scanning electron microscopy NT TR 252

NT TR 252

  • The objective of this study was to develop guidelines for measuring quantitative chemical compositions and dimensions in scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to a predetermined level of uncertainty with the help of the new publication ISO/TAG4/WG 3 (June 1992): Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement.

    A literature survey was made in order to see what relevant standards or recognised procedures are available for measurements in SEM.

    This report containes worked examples of uncertainty analysis and application of the ISO/TAG4/WG 3 guide for measurements in SEM. The results of experiments and the literature survey are summarised and the suitability of the ISO/TAG4/WG 3 guide is discussed.
