We offer measurement services on:

Determination of phase content using X-ray powder diffraction

Investigation of thermal properties (reactivity,thermal expansion and stability) of materials including gas-solid reactions, phase transformations, heat capacity, using thermogravimetry-mass spectrometry over a wide temperature range

Measurements of thermoelectric properties of materials up to 1000°C, including Seebeck coefficient, electrical resistivity, thermal conductivity, and Figure-of-merit.

Thermal diffusivity and conductivity of materials using the Laser-flash method up to 1000°C

Determination of electric conductivity and thermoelectric properties of materials (resistivity, Seebeck coefficient, Figure of merit) up to 1000°C
