Material Lab

In Material Lab we work with material characterization - especially polymers and metals - at both microscopic and macroscopic levels, measurement and testing of items, as well as analysis of soil and water samples related to pollution. The laboratory encompasses experimental teaching in this field, and is also the home for several experimental research projects.
