Instrumental equipment

Institute of Inorganic Chemistry has at its disposal a wide variety of analytical techniques indispensable for characterization of solid state materials. These instruments are mainly used for the research carried out in the IIC (link) and colaboration with partners from other research institutes as well as universities. Free capacity of the instruments is used for the analysis of samples from industrial partners or other interested parties. Most of the instruments are part of the Centre of Instrumental Techniques. More information can be found on the website of the Centre of Instrumental Techniques ( in Czech only).
