  • Industrial probes aid research in space

    The OMP400 probe uses special measurement routines to measure the circularity and cylindricity of the inner and outer surfaces of the test masses As a result of new developments in the theoretical knowledge of the very smallest particles on the planet, some physicists are now calling into question the principle of equivalence of inertial and gravitational mass into question. To examine these ideas, production specialists at the National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB) in Braunschweig developed cylindrical test masses, achieving an accuracy of 2 µm to 3 µm for all geometric characteristics.
