Versailles Project on Advanced Materials and Standards (VAMAS)

VAMAS supports world trade in products dependent on advanced materials technologies, through International collaborative projects aimed at providing the technical basis for harmonized measurements, testing, specifications, and standards.


Active Intercomparison Exercises  
Measurement of dislocation density in metallic materials by Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM)
Assessing self-assembling characteristics of DiBlock Copolymers (DBC) nanostructures
Alignment procedure for identical location analysis between different microscopic measuring instruments for surface chemical analysis
Elastic modulus measurement for compliant materials using AFM
Lateral size of graphene oxide flakes by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
Development of guidelines for reproducible TEM specimen preparation by focused ion beam processing
Measurement of lateral resolution of Raman Microscopy with nanowire artefacts
Quantification of an SI-traceable reference material in cells post-transfection 

VAMAS Steering Committee Meeting

The 49th VAMAS Steering Committee will be hosted by Inmetro in Rio de September 2024. The meeting will be preceded by an international technical workshop.

VAMAS and EURAMET sign Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)

The MoU aims to foster cooperative activities related to metrology for advanced materials and to support the development of high-quality, documentary standards and reference materials.
