Nanocharacterisation of Bulk and Surface Properties
Our unique experimental infrastructure can be applied in the following areas:

Dynamic and structural properties of nanomaterials on a wide range of length and time scales,

nanoparticle synthesis and characterization,

surface microscopy via AFM/STM,

electron microscopy,

electronic and magnetic properties,

nanoscale heterostructures from oxides; organics and hydrites.
We provide access to our facilities via short and long term projects with private and public partners. Additional information can be obtained from info@frimat.ch
