Characterization vs. Synthesis: A Holistic approch in the study of polymeric materials

        The department includes instruments and techniques whose manipulation and/or data interpretation require an in-depth understanding of a particular polymer characterization method. There are methods for the investigation of morphology and surface properties (scanning probe microscopy - SPM, scanning electron microscopy - SEM, Raman microscopy), methods for the investigation of molecular weights (mass spectrometry, gel permeation chromatography - GPC) and methods for the determination of viscoelastic properties (dynamic mechanical analysis - DMA). Also, an excimer laser laboratory functions in the department. The teams of the department provide consultancy in the institute for polymer characterization and have their own research topics.
