Laboratory Support Group

Main content

The Laboratory Support Group (LSG) offers support in experimental research and in teaching activities within the Department of Physics.

At our location in the HPF building you will find support in the areas media installations, cryogenic and press gases as well as in issues regarding infrastructure.

At our location in the HPR building we provide support regarding vacuum technology. We also offer a coating service and a workshop for special laboratory technology and repairs.
