The laboratory is concentrated on study of mutual relations among microstructure, phase composition, and materials properties. The laboratory is equipped with apparatuses for preparation of materialographic samples by grinding and mechanical and electro-polishing method. Microstructural studies of metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite materials by light microscopy method including image analysis are available. Microscopes Axiomat 40 Mat, NEOPHOT 32 , Epityp, Jenavert
