Materials Characterisation Laboratory has a number of characterisation instruments for the study of the physical and chemical properties of the materials, available for research use, which help to increase the different degrees of understanding why different materials show different behaviours.
Gemini VII Surface Area Analyser (Micromeritics)
The Gemini VII analyser provides single and multipoint surface area and pore size measurements. The basic function is to determine the surface area of solid materials.
Mass Spectrometer (MS) (The HPR-20)Frontier IR Single-Range Spectrometer (Perkin Elmer)
The Frontier Spectrometer provides IR analysis in the near, near-mid, mid-far and far infrared regions.
