Perovskite Lab / Wet Chemistry Lab



A versatile lab space with six gloveboxes and seven fume hoods, with most of the lab operating as a dedicated perovskite research area to prevent toxic lead contamination. The lab also contains an additive manufacturing bench and fume hood for researchers to make bespoke research apparatus and develop new materials. 


Horiba Fluorolog Spectrometer

Steady-state emission spectrometer covering 200-2200 nm spectral range with less than 0.1nm spectral resolution.

Cary 5000 UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometer

A high performance UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometer. Using two light sources (Deuterium UV lamp and QI Vis lamp) on the excitation side and a photomultiplier tube and a PbS NIR detector on the detection side, it can measure the optical transmittance of thin-films and liquids in the extended photometric range 175 – 3300 nm.

Biologic VMP3 Potentiostat/Galvanostat with Booster

Multi-channel potentiostat with external high current booster channel for battery research.

NETZSCH STA 449 F3 Jupiter

The simultaneous thermal analyzer STA 449 F3 Jupiter from NETZSCH allows the measurement of mass changes and thermal effects between -150°C and 2400°C. The flexibility resulting from the various sensors, the variety of sample crucibles and the wide TGA-measuring range make the system applicable for analysis of a vast range of materials. Easily interchangeable sample holders allow optimal system adaption to diverse application areas (TGA, TGA-DTA and TGA-DSC measurements).

Eppendorf Centrifuge 5810 R

A refrigerated 3 litre centrifuge for both tubes and plates with a compact footprint.

Biotage Initiator 8 Microwave Reactor

This tool is a rapid microwave-assisted organic synthesizer that is ideal for material and method development. It is designed to heat reagents up to 300 °C in just a few seconds and a pressure up to 30 bar.

Dedicated Perovskite Gloveboxes

Four gloveboxes for exclusive Perovskite formulation to prevent the spread of fine lead halide powders.
