SUCH - Surface Characterisation



  • This technology platform has been created to gather the techniques used for characterising the surface of materials and bio-materials. 

          XPS-ESCA and ToF-SIMS constitute the nucleus of this platform. 
          - X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS-ESCA
          - Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (ToF-SIMS

  • Research teams developing an expertise in these surface characterisation spectroscopies:

          Bio and Soft Matter – Surfaces (BSMA)
          which focuses on the tailoring and characterisation of organic and biological 

          Molecules, Solids and Reactivity (MOST)
            - Catalysis and Chemistry of divided materials
            which focuses on preparation, characterisation and optimization of inorganic solids 
            as heterogeneous catalysts
            - Chemistry of inorganic and organic materials 
            which focuses on coordination and organometallic chemistry applied to 
            heterogeneous catalysis and materials science
