NANOLABU - Laboratorio de Nanomecánica y Caracterzación Nanométrica

Universidad Rey Juan Carlos

The main mision of the Nanolabu laboratory is the morphological and mechanical characterization at nanometric scale of advanced materials. Hardness, Young´s modulus and surface morphology of volumetric materials and thin films of metals, polymers, ceramics and composites can be determined.
