Solids Synthesis Laboratory (LaSIS) - applies original techniques for obtaining advanced materials in solid phase; sol-gel powders by the synthesis in temperature gradient and its variations; Travel Heater and Travel Solvent for solid material (poly ~ and monocrystalline); thin films obtaining (with a thickness between 20-800 nm) by Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) and by sol-gel, spin-coating technique. The laboratory is equipped with suitable devices for the above techniques, such as PLD Workstation (PLD 2000 from PVD Products) upgraded with RHEED accessory; equipment for vacuum and gas heat treatment; spin-coater Laurell 650. Also, the LaSIS laboratory includes a multifunctional device for electrodeposition (ORIGALYS electrochemical combine) used in core-shell nanomaterials obtaining, in analyte identification, and in battery testing, as well as a DROPSENS µSTAT-I-400 potentiostat/galvanostat that can be applied for voltammetric characterization of biological materials. Cutting and polishing systems are used for sample processing.
