The A*STAR’s National Metrology Centre (NMC) is the national measurement institute of Singapore, dedicated to advancing measurement science for an innovative and competitive economy
NMC establishes, develops, maintains and disseminates the national measurement standards traceable to the International System of Units, providing key support to a wide spectrum of industry.
Achieving the nation’s highest level of physical measurement through close collaboration with leading national and international organisation.
With a multidisciplinary team of experienced scientists and engineers and state-of-the-art facilities, NMC provides dedicated services to industry partners to meet their specific needs.
NMC believes in working in close collaboration with industry partners, to create values for them and fuel growth for the industry.
Light-based technologies are finding applications in a diverse range of fields, but one of the most fundamentally important uses of light is for measurement.
Metrology ― the science of measurement ― plays an essential role in advancing science and technology. Precise definitions and measurements underpin almost all scientific and technological developments, from the astrophysical arena, such as sending a probe to Mars, through to the subatomic level, such as the discovery of the Higgs boson. What’s more, metrology has practical applications that directly affect our everyday lives, such as determining the lifetime of lighting sources and color matching paints.
