Nano and micro-structures
The general objective of the SNMS group (Structures, Nano and Micro-Structures) is to understand the micro- and nano structure of materials and multi-materials studied within the groups of the MATEIS laboratory, with a view to better understanding the relations between their properties of use and structural aspects. This approach is supported three different ways:
- Managing the characterisation methods in the laboratory (optical and electronic microscopes and their accessories, preparation materials): we have to ensure the maintenance of our equipment, develop specific skills and offer training programmes that render frequent users.
- Collaborating with all groups that make up the MATEIS laboratory when engaged in research activities or microstructural studies requiring more in-depth investigations.
- Developing a research group, in specific domains, particularly environmental or 3D microscopy.
