A research institute which renders important services such as PTB continually produces many types of specialist publications – be they for scientists or experts in legal metrology. Here you can also find a large variety of publications with a focus on the history of science.
Scientific & technical publications
The "Kohlrausch" is a textbook for physicists during and after their studies. The "Metrologisches Lesebuch" ("A Metrological Textbook") is aimed in general at scientists and others who are generally interested in PTB and metrology. The publication "Sicherheitstechnische Kenngrößen" ("Safety Characteristic Data") is a special book for the field of explosion protection.
For legal metrology specialists
The PTB Testing Instructions serve as supporting documents and guidelines for testing measurement devices and working equipment – for verification authorities, state-approved test centers and monitoring bodies, test laboratories in industry and for teaching purposes.
