Surface and Bulk Analysis Unit

Providing analytical information with higher reliability to all researchers

2023.04.01 Update

Materials analysis techniques and information are fundamental for research and development of new materials, and are the basis of materials characterization. Fundamental principle of Materials Analysis Unit (MAU) is to contribute for research and development of new materials by offering satisfactory and reliable analysis information. Our code of conduct is securing of reliability of the analysis and realization of high accurate analysis technology by developing our technique. Therefore, we are working on the long term and systematic activity including preservation and passing down of the analysis technique for the research and development of analysis method.

We provide technical support for materials analysis and chemical analysis information on various kinds of materials to all researchers in NIMS. We also have been developing more reliable, accurate and precise chemical analysis technique, and carrying out research on materials analysis with an aim for Japanese and international standardization of analysis methods.
