Facts and Figures

Materials Growth & Measurement Laboratory

The main mission of MGML is to provide the broad scientific community with unique possibilities for comprehensive experimental studies of a wide collection of physical phenomena and properties of well-defined materials in various external conditions. The main strategic objective of MGML is the excellence of the infrastructure on the international scale.

MGML offers open access for external users to the instrument suite dedicated to measurements of a rich spectrum of physical properties of materials in a wide range of temperatures, magnetic and electrical fields, and hydrostatic uniaxial pressures. The MGML technology facilities are enabling controlled preparation and characterization of high-quality samples (single crystals and polycrystals) of materials of various types which is available to users who have not their own well-characterized samples needed for measurements.

MGML consists of closely collaborating units: Material Growth and Characterization Laboratory (MGCL), Structural Analysis Laboratory (SAL) and Material Properties Measurement Laboratory (MPML). Researchers interested in using the MGCL, SAL and MPML instrumentation are invited to submit experimental proposals via the User Portal.
The proposals will be evaluated by the MGML Panel.
