RITecC is a center dedicated to innovation and technology transfer for advanced functional materials. There are three main pillars: 1) materials for high-tech industries (e.g. electronics, automotive, renewable energy, telecommunications, security); 2) materials for bio-relatd industry and health; 3) materials for extreme conditions. The center ofer a large variety of services: preparation (especially thin films and nanomaterials) by various techniques (sputtering, PLD, CVD, MBE, chemical, electrochemical); structural and chemical analysis (XRD, SEM, TEM, EPR, Moessbauer, XPS); investigation of physical properties (electric, magnetic, thermic, optic, mechanic); development of demonstrators and prototypes.
The main equipment is grouped in three main infrastructures:
The Center offers state-of-the-art equipment for structural investigations (high-resolution TEM/STEM), surface/interface analysis (XPS, XAS, PEEM/LEEM, AFM/PFM), optical spectroscopies (IR, Raman, luminiscence) and complex investigation of physical properties of advanced materials (VSM, SQUID, PPMS, cryostations, network analysers, dielectric spectroscopy, etc.).
The Center offers access also to clean room facilities (metallization, photo-litography, electron beam lithography, CVD deposition, plasma treatment)
The Center offers services for material characterization, training on advanced characterization techniques and methods, development of demonstrators and prototypes, testing demonstrators and prototypes.
