When high quality samples are not available through collaboration with other research groups, the following equipment is available for synthesis by group members:
High temperature furnaces balances, gas flow systems, and other ancillary equipment.
4 glove boxes for air and moisture sensitive samples.
System for samples processing by laser melting and aerodynamic levitation using 100 W CO2 laser.
Chamber for nanoparticles synthesis by condensation from gas phase using 100 W CO2 laser with glovebox uploading capabilities.
400 W laser system for synthesis by laser melting and aerodynamic levitation equipped with spectropyrometer and fast single color pyrometer.
