IDUB Research Infrastructure

The development of the research infrastructure is one of the goals of the “Excellence Initiative – Research University” Programme. The University finances: the purchase or production of new equipment, the development of existing laboratories, and the employment of operators of the equipment. These activities are carried out, among others, within the framework of IDUB Action I.4.2 “Fund for the Renovation and Development of Research Infrastructure” (Priority Research Area II)

Access to the equipment financed from the IDUB budget will be given not only to employees of the unit that received funding. The infrastructure will be available, based on agreed principles, to research teams from other University units.

Equipment funded from the Fund for the Renovation and Development of Research Infrastructure (Action I.4.2, Priority Research Area II)

In the table below, you can find information about the research infrastructure that has been purchased and is ready to use. Conditions of use should be agreed with the coordinators of the projects (contact details can be found on the websites dedicated to the specific equipment).

New dual chamber glovebox will be used at the UW Faculty of Physics to smelt fluoride glass

Category: IDUB research infrastructure

Thanks to a set of gloveboxes purchased with IDUB funds, a group of researchers from the UW Faculty of Physics will be able to smelt fluoride glass, which will be used, among other things, for research into new micro- and nanostructured optical fibres and image guides for the UV and mid-infrared range…
