In this chapter we give a summary of calibration equipment, together with approximate prices and possible suppliers (for those artifacts that are not widely available). Note that these lists are not necessarily exhaustive and that other suppliers may also be able to provide similar artifacts. In addition, the National Physical Laboratory can supply most of the artifacts described, with calibration where appropriate, and can provide further guidance on the suitability of particular artifacts for specific applications. Additional information can be found in manufacturers’ catalogues.
