Metrology Upgrading Programme - Humidity Measurement


Course Outline

This course will introduce humidity measurement from basic knowledge to applications and provide hands on in handling/calibrating hygrometers. The course covers:

  • Basic concept, terms and definitions for humidity measurement, 
  • Method of humidity measurement such as absolute and relative measurements, 
  • Different types of hygrometers, 
  • Standards in humidity generation and measurement, 
  • Calibration of various type of hygrometers, their uncertainty analysis, and interpretation of report, 
  • Selection of hygrometers for different application cases.

An important aspect of the course is the laboratory sessions which are specially designed to provide participants with valuable firsthand experience in the use of state-of-the-art instruments for humidity measurements.
