Characterization Laboratory

The “Characterization Laboratory” offers advanced instrumentation affording multitechnique characterization of the new materials for photovoltaic, optoelectronic and sensor applications developed by the SmartMatLab partners, and particularly of the preapplicative devices based on such materials, built in the “Preparation Laboratory“.
