LABORATORY OF THERMAL ANALYSIS AND KEMS

  • application of methods of thermal analysis via differential scanning calorimetry and differential thermal analysis and study of vapour pressure of components of studies systems via Knudsen effusion mass spectrometry
  • experimental study of thermal effects, phase transformations, thermodynamic properties, thermodynamic and surface processes and reaction kinetics
  • research in the field of alloys, nanoparticles, polymers, thermoelectric materials and intermetallic materials
  • the acquired data are directly usable for thermodynamic calculations of equilibrium and kinetic processes, for estimation of stability of studied materials and their physicochemical properties
