Soft Matter Laboratory

Lab Overview

This is our colloidal laboratory, where we synthesize nanoparticles of different sizes, shapes and composition.

Schlenk Line

This is the in-house built Schlenk line for the synthesis of air- and water-sensitive nanoparticles.


Our laboratory is equipped with a glovebox, where we handle and store air- and water-sensitive compounds.


The Cary 5000 Spectrophotometer by Agilent Technologies is used to characterize the absorption of semiconductor and metallic nanoparticles in the UV-vis-NIR range.


The Centrifuge 5804R by Eppendorf is applied for purification of colloidal dispersions and the precipitation of particles.
