Ferroelectric, piezoelectric, pyroelectric and electromechanical properties are measured in thin films and bulk materials using an aixACCT double beam laser interferometer and an aixACCT thin film analyser. A Radiant Precision Workstation is also available for ferroelectric loop measurements. For pyroelectric current measurements, two Keithley electrometers are also available.

Local piezoelectric, magnetic, and conductivity measurements are performed using a scanning probe microscope (VEECO Dimension V with TUNA module).

The electric field generated in a piezoelectric material per unit mechanical stress applied to it (piezoelectric voltage coefficient g) can be measured using the Universal Testing System INSTRON 5940
