It is my pleasure to present the new NPL website. The new website has been designed to cater the present needs of the stake holders mainly industries, academia, international and national collaboration partners, suppliers and General public of interest.
Division objective is to strengthen and encourage the overall development in the field of science and technology for the country. The main responsibility is the realization, establishment, custody, maintenance, dissemination and upgradation of the national standards for Physico-mechanical, Electrical, Optical .
The activities of the Radio and Atmospheric Sciences Division comprise with two Major Laboratory projects of the laboratory. The first project is entitled “Radio Physics and Applications”.It deals with the characterization of ionized and non ionized media to aid ionospheric and tropospheric communication systems.
The Division of Engineering Materials mainly comprises of Metals & Alloys, Advanced Carbon Products, Polymeric & Soft Materials and Liquid Crystal groups. The objective of this division is to develop materials, processes and technologies for components, devices and systems in the above mentioned areas.
Our division is responsible for the highest level of time and frequency measurements in India and keeping them traceable to the the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) using ultraprecise satellite links. In simple words, we maintain the Indian Standard Time (IST).
The Division of Electronic Materials has undertaken R & D work on several types of materials :electroluminescent, photovoltaic and electrochromic materials, nanostructured materials, high temperature superconducting materials, advanced ceramic materials and polymeric materials, Efforts have also been made to develop devices involving these materials
Scientist and technical personnel of this division are engaged in understanding the rich manifestations of quantum mechanics in electronic transport, magnetism, optical activity, and many other properties and their susceptibility to external perturbations for crossing the frontiers of contemporary condensed matter physics.
The NPL Campus is centrally located in the heart of Delhi. With just about 21kms from the Indira Gandhi International Airport and 6.5kms from the New Delhi Railway Station, the campus can be reached easily from
