Facilities

Our laboratory is equipped with a variety of state-of-the-art characterisation instruments and  processing equipment that are used for research and development of (photo)electrochemical materials and devices. Additionally,  we have direct access to other large area deposition facilities in PVcomB, such as magnetron sputtering, plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition, evaporation, atomic layer deposition and screen printing, among.

Access to our facilities and equipment may be available through collaborative or purchased access arrangements. For inquiries please contact sonya.calnan@helmholtz-berlin.de.

Potentiostat

Electrochemical analysis

The potentiostat galvanostat (4000+ Parstat) with a frequency response analyser for currents up to 40 A is used to conduct electrochemical analysis on materials and electrochemical cells

thermal imaging

Thermal imaging

The mid-infrared thermography camera (FLIR A6700sc) is used to measure temperature distribution in solar hydrogen generation prototypes for investigations on heat transfer in the device and for simulation model validation
