Department Laboratories

Measurements are an important part of science and technology. Here is an image of a sorption calorimeter under construction. This instrument will be used to study water vapor uptake by materials.

Several of the research groups and departments at Lund university have their own laboratories. This equipment is in many cases available also to external users. Some department/group laboratories are listed below with examples of equipment available and persons to contact.
