Analysis of processes, materials, and their properties on the nanometer scale.
The core facility "Interdisciplinary Center for Analytics on the Nanoscale (ICAN)" provides scientists at UDE – as well as their research collaborators – with an outstanding opportunity to analyze materials from the millimeter down to the nanoscale.
We have access to a unique and extensive pool of methods to facilitate this approach. Spectroscopic, microscopic, and diffraction-based techniques are available for structural analysis and to investigate dynamic processes. In addition, ICAN offers methods to characterize electrical and thermal conductivity, photoconductivity, and optical absorbance of nanomaterials. The core of ICAN is a microscopy center in the NETZ building where specialized laboratories can work isolated against environmental influences on high-resolution microscopic techniques:
The microscopy techniques are complemented by comprehensive sample preparation and further analytical methods within each research group of CENIDE. To request analysis of your material, obtain access to the microscopy center as a user, or learn more, please visit www.cenide.de/ican
