Laboratory of Microscopy

The Microscopy Laboratory is a support facility of the Department of Advanced Materials providing microscopy, analytical and consulting services to CxI, the faculties of the Technical University and customers from corporate entities and the general public.

Research and Services

The main activities of the laboratory are microscopic, local chemical and crystallographic analyses with the aim of structural characterization, phase identification, fractography and defectoscopy for the departments of the Technical University and customers from companies and the public. We cooperate with students in solving their semester, bachelor, diploma and dissertation theses. We significantly participate in teaching students of TU faculties.

We focus on the analysis of micro- and nanomaterials, composites, thin films, intermetallics, ferrous and non-ferrous alloys, polymeric materials, geopolymers, natural materials, etc. Our activities include, for example, particle size measurements, determination of particle composition, identification of material defects and causes of failure of machine parts, distribution and statistical processing of the determined results for the needs of materials research.


We offer:

  • Analysis of the structure and surface of materials
  • Research into the causes of failure of structural components in the industrial sphere
    Analysis and optimization of the properties of new materials developed in the industrial sphere
  • Expert advice and consultation in the optimization of technological processes and parameters
  • Training of personnel in optical and electron microscopy and metallographic evaluation of materials
