A glovebox (or glove box) is a sealed container that is designed to allow one to manipulate objects where a separate atmosphere is desired.
The Arc furnace - the arc furnace is used for the synthesis of polycrystalline samples and rods that are used for the floating zone method.
Solid State Electrotransport (SSE) (produced by Vacuum praha) is used to refine pure elements (Rare earth metals and uranium) as well as single crystals of intermetallic compounds (mainly prepared by the Czochralski technique).
Technology of metal hydrides requires a system in which a specimen can be exposed to high vacuum or high pressure conditions together with high temperature.
AFM microscope - (Bruker - AFM Dimension® Edge™) (50% shared with Department of Metal Physics)
The Dimension Edge™ Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) incorporates Bruker's PeakForce Tapping™ technology to provide the highest levels of performance, functionality, and accessibility in its class. Based on the Dimension Icon® platform, the Edge system has been designed from top to bottom to deliver the low drift and low noise necessary to achieve publication-ready data in minutes instead of hours, all at price points well below expectations for such performance. ScanAsyst® imaging, integrated visual feedback, and preconfigured settings enable expert-level results
simply and consistently, making the most advanced large-sample atomic force microscopy capabilities and techniques available to every facility and user.
