VANCOUVER, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ - Callinan Mines has commenced exploration activity on the recently optioned Gossan claims, located near the community of Cranberry Portage, Mb.Â The work program will consist of approximately ten diamond drill holes, totaling approximately 3,000 meters.
Singapore Launches Infrastructure for Metrology in Chemistry (MiC) to Realise Accurate, Traceable and Internationally Comparable Chemical and Biological Measurements The chemicals industry contributed S$59 (US$48) billion to Singaporeâ€™s economy in 2009, and Singapore is establishing itself as a global chemical and biomedical hub.
Taking the first steps of what would be a major historical advance in the science of measurement, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is participating in a worldwide effort to recommend major revisions to the International System of Units (SI), the modern metric system that is the basis of global measurements in commerce, science and other aspects of everyday life.
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the German national metrology institute have used NIST's miniature atom-based magnetic sensor to successfully track a human heartbeat, confirming the device's potential for biomedical applications.
A new experiment proposed by physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) may allow researchers to test the effects of gravity with unprecedented precision at very short distancesâ€”a scale at which exotic new details of gravity's behavior may be detectable.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued two publications calling for the amendment of labeling laws to allow the voluntary use of only metric units on some consumer products.
Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built an enhanced version of an experimental atomic clock based on a single aluminum atom that is now the world's most precise clock, more than twice as precise as the previous pacesetter based on a mercury atom.
If you've seen an Internet ad for capacitor-type power factor correction devices, you might be led to believe that using one can save you money on your residential electricity bill.
A theoretical physicist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a method for calculating the motions and forces of thousands of atoms simultaneously over a wider range of time scales than previously possible.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has unveiled a method for calibrating entire waveformsâ€”graphical shapes showing how electrical signals vary over timeâ€”rather than just parts of waveforms as is current practice.
