This submission for the degree of Doctor of Science describes work initiated, led or contributed to by Dr Graham Machin, a graduate of the University of Birmingham, over the last 25 years. The submission comprises of six main parts, illustrating the different contributions made to the area of temperature measurement. In brief these are: • Development and improvement of non-contact thermometry standards • Comparisons of non-contact thermometry scales, including the development of new methods of comparison • Contributions to the development of high temperature fixed points as new temperature references above the freezing point of copper (1 084.62 °C) • Development of methods for the mitigation of temperature sensor drift at high temperatures • Improvements and innovations in medical thermometry - in a variety of settings • Leadership in international temperature measurement research The thesis begins with an introduction to the subject of the research, including a brief overview of the presented papers. Then a list of the presented papers is given followed by copies of the manuscripts. The thesis ends with an Appendix containing an up to date publication record.
