List of Instruments

[ Surface Characterization | Particle and Dispersion Characterization | Solution and Dispersion Characterization | Spectrometry | Other Instruments]

The instrumentation can very roughly be classified according to the type of research they are intended for although many of the instruments could be placed in several categories. Below, a few examples of the research facilities are given. (For administrator: Full list.)

The placement of the shared instruments is: PIC = Physics Instrument Center; CIC= Chemistry Instrument Center.
