Tools and sub-systems

A number of sample preparation tools and experiment sub-systems are available to the facility:

– For samples preparation: another cold chamber (down to -20°C), freezer, set of sample holders, several specific tools for ice sample preparation (H2O and CO2 ice), 2 sets of sieves, grinders, mortars, saw, balances, microscopes, owen, ultra-pure water, several pure gasses, wet chemistry materials, pellet press, several owens (up to 1200°C) for sample treatments.

– For the experiment: a thermodynamic volumetric system with high accuracy pressure gauges (10-6 to 1 bar), a flow meter (1-10 sccm) and pumps. He-Ne laser + detectors, camera for sample monitoring, …

– A FTIR spectrometer Brucker-70 (Near-IR, Mid-IR) is also available for complementary measurements at room temperature. It is equipped for transmission measurements and reflectance (variable angles attachment).
