We look for structural phase transitions and determine their basic thermodynamic data (temperature, enthalpy change, entropy change) in the prepared materials by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The phase composition, structural data and crystallite dimensions are determined by X-ray diffraction, partially in collaboration with the Department of Material Analysis. Some single crystals are characterized by X-ray single crystals diffraction in cooperation with the Department of Structure Analysis We use also scanning electron microscope in the Department of Material Analysis. We look for and determine nonlinear optic properties. Raman spectroscopy is used in collaboration with the research group of dielectric and IR spectroscopy.
We characterized electrical activity of ferroelectric biomaterials immersed in the solution by the measurement of zeta potential at solid-liquid interface.
