The Solar Lab Facility

A high-flux solar simulator, capable of recreating the irridation conditions that effect the limiting components and design of solar power plants, is operated by the Solar Facility. Complementary activities include ray-tracing simulation for the optical design of concentrator components and multi-physics simulation of high-temperature solar receivers for performance optimisation.

About Solar Lab Facility

Structrural Biotechnology Lab

The laboratory, which is a shared facility with Karolinska Institutet, provides equipment for high resolution electron microscopy of biological preparations, lab facilities, transmission electron microscopes with cryo options as well as soft-and hardware for image processing.
