Crystal growth & sample preparation

In our sample preparation laboratory, we can prepare any material systems from different research areas for scanning or transmission electron microscopy investigations. There are a variety of devices and specially made tools (also self-made) available.

  • polishing tables
  • ultramicrotome
  • Equipment for thinning and polishing using argon ions
  • diamond wire saw
  • thread sawing
  • Heating cabinets and tables
  • Steaming equipment (mainly carbon)
  • microscopes

In our Crystal Labs, we synthesize single crystals of novel low-dimensional magnetic materials.
