Equipment

  • Angular dependent dynamic and static light scattering apparatus (DLS and SLS) for the determination of the hydrodynamic radius, the molar mass and particle size/form respectively (ALV)
  • Langmuir trough optimized for liquid/liquid interfaces including an interfacial rheometer for the determination of the viscoelastic properties at the interface at various compressions (KSV-NIMA)
  • Drop shape analyzer for the determination of the surface- and interfacial tension (DSA100 from Krüss)
  • Potentiostat (for various electrochemical methods including impedance spectroscopy; Model 660E from CHInstruments)
  • Spectroelectrochemical device (spectrometer) for temperature dependent (electrochemical) measurements (UV-Vis and fluorescence; SEC2000 from ALS)
  • (Electrochemical) quartz crystal microbalance with monitoring of the viscoelastic film properties (QCM200 from SRS)
  • Rheometer (Anton Paar)
  • Freeze dryer for aqueous and organic solutions
