Enabling Analytical Methods
Division for Advanced Analytical Technologies (Lab 502)
The Division for Advanced Analytical Technologies (Lab 502) belongs to the Empa’s Department for Mobility, Energy and Environment. We focus on developing, or innovating, analytical methods for the chemical characterization of materials.
Our research starts and ends with applied chemical processes, e.g. of relevance to the industry or society: our "added value" is enabling chemical data collection.
Such knowledge-creating research is synergistic to that in the industry, which is typically of knowledge-processing kind. On the other hand, our research is complementary to that at academia, because of our focus on utility proposition and technology transfer.
