National Institute for Metrological Research (INRIM)
The National Institute for Metrological Research (INRIM) focuses on studying metrology (measurement sciences), and on conducting research on materials, as well as on developing innovative technologies and devices. As the leading metrological institute, INRIM defines the primary standards for basic and derived units of the International Unit System (SI), ensuring compliance with said standards, their international comparison and providing traceability of Italian measurements to the SI.
In this role INRIM has published significant results studying nanotechnologies, metrology for biosciences, chemistry and the environment; the nanofabrication laboratory Nanofacility Piemonte provides an infrastructure for the manipulation of new types of nano-objects by nanolithography and for the development of innovative structures for high-density magnetic recording and sensing.
