Description of the technology

The ability to characterise materials, physically and chemically, enables a greater understanding of materials' properties and behaviour. This requires not only state of the art equipment but also the experts to design and lead the investigative process and interpret the data.

Analytical techniques can aid in both understanding materials' performance issues and in developing new materials for specific property requirements.

Brunel's Experimental Techniques Centre (ETC) provides a unique and bespoke service of problem definition, experimental design, measurement, data analysis and interpretation. It combines the expertise of the University's many academics and a suite of techniques and equipment including:

  • Scanning Electron Microscopy
  • Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy
  • Transmission Electron Microscopy
  • Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscopy
  • Energy Dispersive X‑ray analysis
  • X‑ray diffraction
  • Single crystal X‑ray diffraction with variable temperature capability
  • Thermal Analysis ‑ DSC, TGA, DMA
  • Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy with imaging capability
  • Raman spectroscopy
  • UV/VIS/NIR Spectroscopy
  • Atomic Force Microscopy
  • Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy
  • Light microscopy
