PDF Print Equipment

During the past ten years, ASU has developed modern laboratory equipment (approximate total value of 780,000 Euro) for the detailed physical, chemical and morphological characterization of materials, including:

  • High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscope (HRTEM) (JEOL JEM 2010) equipped with X-ray Microanalysis (Oxford INCA)
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (JEOL 6300) and X-ray Microanalysis (ISIS 2000)
  • Catalyst Characterization with Temperature Programming Methods (AMI-1, Altamira) and Mass Spectrometer Detection (Balzers, Omnistar)
  • Study of Pore Structure with N2 physisorption (Autosorb-1,Quantachrome)
  • Thermogravimetric Analysis – Differential Scanning Calorimetry (TGA-DSC) (SDT 2960, TA Instruments)
  • Elemental Analysis with ICP Spectroscopy (Optima 4300 DV , Perkin Elmer)
  • Crystalline phase identification and lattice parameters with X-ray Diffraction (Siemens D-500)
  • Particle Size Distribution (Mastersizer X, Malvern)
  • Catalyst Preparation
