Crystal Lab

The Crystal Lab suite integrates chemical instruments and methods necessary to synthesize novel materials. Typical materials are new low dimensional magnets or substances which are technically important, e.g. superconductors, multiferroics or thermoelectrics.

We provide many methods to control the material synthesis from the initial constituents to the final products – the samples for our research at HZB. Important are high temperature furnaces where up to 3000°C can be reached using different gas atmosphere

The access to the Crystal Lab is open for members of HZB. The resources are accessible through the booking system. Users will be trained so that they are able to follow their synthesis plans independently. We also welcome external users, but the contact must be mediated by members of HZB.
