The recent theories of evidence and possibility represent an interesting generalization of the wellknow probability theory. Therefore, they appear to be a promising mathematical framework for the expression of uncertainty in measurement, capable of overcoming the limitations of the presently followed probability approach when uncompensated systematic effects are present. This paper proposes an example of uncertainty evaluation framed within these new theories and an experimental validation that shows the correctness and effectiveness of the proposed approach.
