The « characterization » platform makes available to the scientific community a wide variety of characterization tools in order to probe chemical and physical properties of materials. Apart from the maintenance of the wide range of instruments available, the role of the platform is to bring its expertise in cutting edge techniques. The large diversity of experimental techniques made available by the platform allows for probing material properties at different scale levels, going from macroscopic properties (magnetic, electric, optical and mechanical properties) down to nano-scale information (molecular structure, magnetic field imaging in nano-objects, …). The experimental techniques giving access to this information involve a strong knowledge in the field of instrumentation, in-situ electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, diffraction (X-rays and electrons) and radiation-matter interaction in a large extent.
