Glass preparation laboratory

The materials investigated are often synthesized in house using appropriate protocols via melt-quenching or sol-gel. Before the experiments, samples are usually drilled or cut to the desired sizes and then optically polished.


The preparation laboratory has three facilities:

  • chemistry laboratory;
  • melt-quenching facility;
  • sample preparation.
