The facility consists at the moment of 5 laboratories, devoted to different aspects of materials characterization and equipped with state-of the art instruments.

  • Photoelectron Spectroscopies (XPS, UPS)
  • X-ray Diffraction
  • Scanning Probe Microscopies
  • Mechanical characterization
  • Elemental Characterization
