Location of Resource
Resource Centre will be available on the 1st floor of the building "M" at the V.A.
Fock Institute of Physics, St. Petersburg State
University. It will be available in rooms
adjacent to the MRC. This arrangement will allow the RC to create
a single modern research infrastructure of the two centers and, ultimately, will enable implementation of a
comprehensive study of nanosystems, using microscopy techniques, optical and microwave spectroscopy,
magnetometry, acoustics, and dielectric spectroscopy.
The total area of
RC will be 461.7 sq. m. In this area will be
located seminars room(room 114),
equipped with modern multimedia equipment. Employees
workplaces (room 117) will be equipped with modern computer
systems that have access to the Internet and the local RC network, which allows to obtain information on the
progress of the experiment in remote access.
To ensure the modern conditions of work, RC will be equipped with a lounge staff (room 116, 21.5
sq. m.), because the modern researches involves long hours and intense work of staff and, in some cases, work
at night. RC office, which will host a meeting with users and discussion of the results will be placed in the
room 115 (22 sq. m.). Office of the director of the Center supposed to be placed in the
room 120 (22.9 sq. m.).
In order to ensure the modern level of the studying of polymers, biopolymers, bio and of dispersed systems, liquid
crystals and nanocomposites, it will be set up complex of preparative modern equipment in the RC, including a work
space with a water-soluble (room 106) and solvent-borne (room 105) systems . The following equipment will be available in the room
106 (22.1 sq.m): a fume hood, distillator, drying cabinet, preparative
ultracentrifuge, refrigerator for storing samples. Room 105 (22.1kv.m.) will
be equipped with a fume hood, preparative ultracentrifuge setting for the ultrasonic irradiation, drying cabinet,
cupboard for storage of chemical RDA. reagents, a refrigerator for storing
Equipment of "Molecular hydrodynamics and optics" department will be placed in the rooms 101, 107 and
111. The following equipment will be available in the room 101 (23.5 sq.m): hood,
analytical ultracentrifuge Optima XL1 and associated equipment - laboratory precision density meter DMA5000
M, high-mikroviscometer AMVn, analytical balance.
In room 107 (48.5 square meters) will be available spectral optical equipment designed to study
water-and solvent-borne biological and synthetic systems.
In the room.
111 (22.7 sq. m) will be placed equipment used to determine the size of molecules and particles of molecular weight
and rheological properties of polymers and biopolymers: hood, Photocor Compact-Z, spectrophotometer, photon
correlation spectrometer, rheometer Physica MCR501, refractometer
Equipment of "Rradiospectroscopy and magnetometry" department will be placed in rooms 102, 103,
104, 110, 112-113.
Phys.properties Mes. systemPPMS-9, designed for accurate measurementof thermal conductivity,electrical conductivity, magnetic susceptibility ofmaterials will be availablein the room110 (22.8 sq.m)
The ultrasonic measurement system SNAP with a cryostat will be available in the room 102(16.9 sq.m)
Complex for acousto-optic measurements will be available in
room102 (or 121). The complex will include a cryostat, and the laser He-Ne and the high-frequency generator.
NMR spectrometer Bruker Avance III 400 MHz and the complex Quadrasorb will be installed in the room104 (48.9 sq.m).
Complex of automated measurement of the magnetic properties of materials in a wide range of magnetic fields and temperatures MPMS SQUID VMS will be place din the room.103 (16.9 sq.m)
System for analysis of the dielectric properties of materials Novocontrol and immittancemeter Solartron 1260A, and related equipment, will be placedin the rooms 112-113(34.5 sq.m)
