The sample preparation laboratory

The research group has a broad range of specimen preparation equipment for different materials and geometries.

The lab is located at Department of Physics in Realfagbygget B4-106. Additionally some sample preparation equipment is located at Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the plasma- and UV/Ozone cleaners for contamination removal is placed in the preparation room close to the microscopes in the Chemistry building K1.
