Science & Research

INiIM laboratories, located mainly in the Nanotechnology Centre A, are focused on the design and synthesis of new materials as well as on the investigation of their properties. The manufacturing techniques used are based on traditional high-temperature methods used in the manufacture of glasses and ceramics – melting and solid phase synthesis as well as on the PVD and CVD techniques applicable for thin-film materials. Bulk materials and thin layers are also produced using the zol-gel method. These materials are manufactured and modified in order to obtain desired nanostructures. Laboratory equipment enables obtaining full characteristics of the tested materials including electrical, thermal, magnetic, transport and mechanical properties. The structure and morphology of the test materials is determined using x-ray diffractometry (XRD) and optical and scanning microscopy (SEM and SPM). Materials are also characterized using spectroscopic methods (FTiR, UV-VIS, XPS). Impedance spectroscopy (IS) and advanced systems for measuring DC conductivity over a wide temperature range are used to determine the electrical properties of materials. It is also possible to measure thermoelectric properties. An advanced open-architecture PPMS (Quantum-Design) system enables advanced measurements of electrical, magnetic and thermal properties down to liquid helium temperatures.
