Terahertz Materials Analysis Center (THeMAC)

The Terahertz Materials Analysis Center (THeMAC) is a central open-access facility at IFM, Linköping University (LiU) built around the only Terahertz (THz) frequency domain ellipsometer and THz optical Hall effect instrument in Europe. THeMAC is an open and e-access infrastructure where users from academia and industry are trained and serviced. As an integral part of the center, a dedicated data storage and analysis lab that enables users to remotely access data and software, and to perform data analysis is being built. The main goal of THeMAC is to address current and future needs of fundamental and applied research in materials science, physics, chemistry, life sciences, defense, medicine, and ultra-fast communication. The facility is financed by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) research infrastructure grand No. RIF14-055.

THz frequency-domain ellipsometer and OHE instrument

2018 May

The OHE instrument is shaping up! The instrument has been re-configured to accommodate the 8T superconducting magnet with VTI and the Bruker Vertex 70 FIR spectrometer. The system currently being tested.

Data storage and analysis lab

2018 May

The analysis and data storage server has been set up. The server has 1 CPU with 12 physical cores (24 virtual) and 64 GB RAM, and thus can handle multiple heavy analysis tasks. Another CPU and more RAM can be added if needs arises.

The server has been set up to allow connection of external users.  So far we succesfully connected from Windows and Linux OSs, and we testing with Mac OS.

The  analysis software has also been istalled and is ready to use. Currently the databses have been prepared.
