Surface Analysis Facility

This research facility run by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) DLR Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics in Stuttgart facilitates the elemental and chemical analysis of surfaces using complementary methods.

Surface analysis using complementary methods

The Surface Analysis Facility at DLR in Stuttgart is used for the analysis of chemical materials at various scales. It has a surface sensitivity in the nanometre to micrometre range and a lateral resolution in the micrometre range. It is used for research into functional materials at interfaces, such as chemical and electrochemical catalysts or heat-treated composites, and is available to the entire research centre as an analytical service provider.
