Physical characterization

The BBT has an extensive catalog of techniques for the physical characterization of materials, which includes: 

  • Mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP). 
  • X -ray micro Computed Tomography (micro-CT).
  • Density determination by Helium pycnometry.
  • Gas adsorption measurements (specific surface area and porosity).
  • Roughness evaluation by Surface profilometry and optical interferometry.
  • Wettability studies by Contact angle method.
  • Particle size analysis and distribution by laser diffraction.
  • Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).
