Graphene coatings make steel corrosion-resistant

IFM researchers have grown graphene flakes directly onto stainless steel, improving the metal's resistance to corrosion.

Miracle fuel

IFM researchers are helping to make hydrogen extraction from water more feasible.

Not just a flight of fancy

IFM researchers get closer to shape-morphing aircraft wings.

Thermo-electric property measurement

The ULVAC-RIKO-ZEM3 is used for thermoelectric characteristics evaluation of a wide range of materials, such as semiconductors, ceramics, and metals. This equipment is used by the group, mainly to measure Seebeck coefficient and electrical conductivity at elevated temperatures (up to 450°C) and also to evaluate the effect of aging on thermoelectric properties of Mg alloys.


  • Temperature range: 30 - 800°C
  • System control software
  • Measurement temperature steps: 125 max
  • Sample Size: 2 to 4 mm (square or diameter) x 5 to 22 mm (length)
  • Atmosphere: low pressure helium gas (air) and vacuum (-0.09 Mpa)
