Within the IPF Dresden the Analytical Department acts as a center for characterization techniques for macromolecules. We maintain a wide range of equipment that is available to the entire institute.
The Analytical Department staff has broad experience in the field of polymer characterization, performs most routine sample analysis for the institute, and assists members of other departments to solve their analytical problems. Training courses for specialized characterization techniques are offered for scientists of the institute and for students of the Dresden University of Technology.
The main research activities of scientists in the Analytical Department are project-oriented within the main research areas of the institute. In addition, basic and applied research is conducted to further develop analytical methods for polymer characterization.
