ADVANCED CHARACTERIZATION AND INSTRUMENTATION (ACI)

2020 09 16 ACI image(resize)

The Advanced Characterization and Instrumentation (ACI) Department at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) targets the development of novel characterization techniques, through instrumentation and new or more efficient analysis to help realize new materials development and support the demanding failure analysis requirements in line with IMRE’s and A*STAR’s mission. Advancing from the characterization and instrumentation activities, we aim to translate our research outcomes into prototypes for possible commercialization. 

Home to a suite of high-performance analytical instruments for materials characterization and a qualified team of experienced scientists and specialists, the team offers a broad range of services in advanced materials characterization and failure analyses to support A*STAR researchers, the wider research community such as universities, public sector agencies and industry. The list of our services and main characterization equipment (non-exhaustive) can be found here.
