Lab Tour

Urban Research Group utilizes and continuously develops state-of-the-art chemical imaging instrumentation. Interal Reflective IR imaging allows us to obtain chemical information with a spatial resolutoin of ~1 µm in mid-IR and to moniter molecular level processes in heterogeneous and complex chemical and morphological evironments. Complemented by Raman imaging facilities, we are capable of fully charactrizing polymers and other material with unprecedented precison and sensitivity. Equipped in modern synthesis and analytical labs as well as access to electron and optical miscoscopy facilities, URG designs and develops novel stimuli-responsive materials for a braod spectrum of applications and future technologies.
