Facilities and infrastructures


The joint laboratories of UiO, SINTEF and NTNU hold a large number of standard and advanced characterization tools, including a wide range of spectroscopic instrumentation.

The laboratories and equipment include a number of microreactors for catalyst studies, small pilot plants, the necessary equipment for catalyst and material characterization. Recently, in situ IR/Raman and the TEOM-technique have been introduced in the laboratory. Catalysis Group (KinCat)

The spectroscopic instrumentation organized within the UiO/SINTEF Gemini center “Anspec” and the spectroscopy laboratory at NTNU will form a basis for the activities. The project will also make use of coordinated characterization within several main national infrastructures.

Norwegian centre for transmission electron microscopy (NORTEM)

The NORTEM consortium offers access to a wide range of TEM instruments with different capabilities.
