Equipments Details


The SIAM platform enables applied and fundamental research in material sciences. It is active both in the synthesis and the characterization of materials.
The research conducted at SIAM has direct applications in various fields such as photovoltaic, intelligent coatings, nanomaterials, public health, biomedical applications...
SIAM expertise in materials characterization relies on its capability of combining various spectroscopies (XPS, ToF- SIMS & IBA) for offering a global picture of any kind of sample: metals, welds, glass, polymers, powders, liquids, in vivo biological material...
In addition, SIAM has several facilities for functionalising materials and/or synthesising thin films by plasma treatments.
