Metrology and optics
Professor Lars Mattsson
Description of the field
The insight of metrology as a precondition for maintaining high quality standards in production has grown strong over the past years. Many have realized that shortages in quality are the real cost driver, and not the costs for metrology systems and processes in themselves. A prerequisíte for the production and control of precision products are thus well developed metrology techniques. The increased interest for metrology was also reflected when we initiated SIMET - the Swedish Industrial Metrology Forum
a forum for all interested in metrology, from instrument suppliers, consultants, educators, academic researchers to users who have a chance to have an effect on status, research and education.
