  • Groundbreaking method to map the interaction between atomically thin layers

    When two atomically thin layers of a material are stacked and twisted slightly on top of one another, they can develop radically different properties. They may become superconducting or even develop magnetic or electronic properties due to the interaction of their two layers. The challenge for scien more

  • Original kilogram replaced

    In addition to Ampere, Kelvin, Mol and Co., the kilogram also is now defined by a natural constant. In concrete terms, this means that the original kilogram, which has been the measure of all things for 130 years, has now served its purpose in Paris. This is made possible by the single crystals grow more

  • Power to the constants!

    If you come across someone who can tell you by heart and without cheating what a kilogram is after 20 May 2019, beware! It is probably a particular kind of scientist, a metrologist, who is still overly enthusiastic about the fundamental change experienced by the International System of Units, the SI more

Everything different, Nothing changes

During the last several years, Mettler-Toledo has been privileged to participate in several strategic partnerships that have contributed to the newly established and highly stable kilogram definition. This video explains the background of the 1 kg redefinition and the effect this change will hav ... more

  • The traceability of measurement results

    Metrological traceability is necessary for consistent, comparable and valid measurement values. As a fundamental concept of modern-day metrology, it allows measurement results to be internationally recognized and is required by norms and accreditation standards all over the world. The traceability of measurement results also carries significance for business and liability issues. more

  • The Best Measurement

    It is now more than 30 years since attempts started to find a way of defining the kilogram based on an atomic constant or a fundamental physical constant. Since then, two methods have advanced sufficiently far to make it likely that there will be a new definition within the coming years, namely the Watt balance ­experiment for determination of Planck‘s constant h and the Avogadro experiment for determining the ­Avogadro Constant NA. more

  • The importance of traceability in laboratory medicine

    World Metrology Day is celebrated annually on the 20th of May and this year’s focus on health provides an opportunity to emphasize the importance of comparable and reliable measurement results in laboratory medicine. more
