The growth in nanotechnology has led to an increased requirement for traceable dimensional measurements of nanometre-sized objects and micrometre-sized objects with nanometre tolerances. To meet this challenge NPL has developed both purpose built instrumentation and metrology for commercially available equipment. This paper describes the development and use of a selection of these instruments that include, atomic force microscopy, x-ray interferometry, a low force balance, a micro coordinate measuring machine and areal surface texture measuring instrument.
