Materials Science Lab

In collaboration with HZG and TUM, the Materials Science Lab serves as laboratory for complementary analytics and sample preparation (polishing, cutting, etching, and annealing) with regard to subsequent neutron scattering measurements. It is equipped with several analytic instruments for instance X-ray Diffractometer (XRD) mainly for battery research, thin films (XRR) and high-performance materials, Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), Micro-Hardness and Optical Microscopes.

Equipment:

Analytic instruments:
