Materials Preparation Facilities

In order to study different aspects of the structure, dynamics and functionality of new materials, a preparative solid state chemistry laboratory has been set up at I.E.S.L.-FO.R.T.H..

Various synthetic techniques including sol-gel and redox precipitation processes in addition to conventional solid-state high-temperature methods, are been implemented. Sample preparation facilities and furnaces for working temperatures up to 1850 K are available. There is great expertise in handling air-and moisture- sensitive compounds under anaerobic conditions involving high-vacuum lines and dry-box techniques.
