The general synthesis lab contains and houses all the necessary equipment for nanoparticle synthesis and basic characterisation.
The Mintek ISO 3 cleanroom is a cleanest environment of the cleanroom and is designed to combine “top down” and “bottom up” approaches to construct novel electro-nic and microfluidic devices with micro and nanoscale sizes and to understand their behaviour including quan-tum phenomena.
The characterisation lab houses the HRSEM, TEM and AFM needed for the detailed characterisation of nano-materials.
It is a modular, fully integrated, parameter analyzer that per-forms electrical characteriza-tion of materials, semiconduc-tor devices and processes.
A spectrophotometer is an instrument which measures the reflection or absorbance characteristics of a sample. Here the absorbance can be captured in the ultraviolet, visible and near-infrared wave-length ranges (300 - 3200 nm).
It is a vibrational technique for identification and analysis of molecular species. The science is based on the detection and processing of the scattered radiation produced from a molecule when it is irradiated with a monochromatic laser light.
The Zetasizer Nano Z system is dedicated to the measure-ment of zeta potential and electrophoretic mobility of colloids and nanoparticles, in aqueous and non-aqueous dispersions, using Laser Doppler Micro-Electrophoresis.
PVD uses a physical process (under vacuum), such as heating or sputtering, to produce a material vapour, which is then deposited on an object that requires a coating.
