Analytical and measurement technology

The member institutes of the Fraunhofer Photocatalysis Alliance have a wide range of characterization methods at their disposal for surfaces and layers. Our customers can make unlimited use of our broad range of analytical methods for product and technology development.

  • layer characterization
  • demonstration of the effectiveness of photocatalytic layer systems:
  • degradation of colored indicators (proof via absorption or fluorescence);
  • formation or degradation of simple molecules which do not absorb in the UV region (proof via for example IR absorption, pH change)
  • deactivation of bacteria, fungi and algae
  • measurement of hydrophilic properties:
    measurement of the surface energy and contact angle measurements
  • effectiveness and environmental compatibility of nanoparticles
