The Imaging, Characterization and Analytics Group is an integrated part of QF’s research offering world-class analytical services for materials imaging, characterization and analysis in support of QF research community. This group provides state-of-the-art spectroscopy and microscopy capabilities to address the scientific needs associated with the energy, water security and environmental challenges. Its capabilities include nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), surface characterization, electron microscopy and optical characterization capabilities. These competences offer extraordinary spatial and energy resolution for chemical imaging and analysis along with three dimensional imaging compositional analysis. The group counts with laboratories equipped to support research activities in the areas of solar energy harvesting, energy storage, water security, catalysis, environmental chemistry and biomedical research. Lab facilities will be leveraged to benefit oil and gas industry and other industrial entities in Qatar.
