This technology platform unites 4 complementary techniques and the know-how that permits structural characterization of small molecules as well as macromolecular systems.
This advanced technology platform of the Institute of Condensed Matter and Nanosciences serves a large community of users interested by microscopy characterization tools mainly in the context of materials science, chemistry, solid-state physics, and (bio)nanotechnology, although other disciplinary fields are certainly welcome.
The goal of the LAS&O technology platform is threefold: (i) to provide support to unexperienced people who are interested in optical methods for their own research; (ii) to lend small optical equipments (spectrometer, powermeter, ...) to occasional user; (iii) to gather large optical equipments.
This technology platform has been created to gather the techniques used for characterising the surface of materials and bio-materials: (i) X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS-ESCA); (ii) Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (ToF-SIMS)
The P2C technology platform offers a wide range of analysis and characterization techniques in the field of macromolecular materials.
A database lists (almost) all the instruments available in IMCN. The database is yearly updated. Click here to access the database and log as 'Compte d'invité' (no password required).
Technical workshops and a chemicals store also provide services to the members of the institute and of the university.
