The Tandem Laboratory performs world-leading research with the help of ion beams. The Laboratory located at Ångström Laboratory at Uppsala University is a national infrastructure supported by VR-RFI and SSF.

Welcome to the Tandem Laboratory

The Tandem Laboratory is a department of special character within the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Uppsala University. The laboratory is a national research infrastructure for world-leading materials analysis. Active in a wide range of fields, the Tandem Laboratory is serving our society on national and international level.

The Tandem Laboratory provides services in three activity branches. We can provide our users access to 

  • non-destructive characterization of composition & structure of materials on the nanoscale 
  • ion-beam induced modification of materials and precise tailoring of material properties 
  • ultra-sensitive mass-spectrometry for medicine, biology, archeology and geology.

Our services within ion beam analysis (IBA), ion-beam modification of materials (IBMM) and accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) are requested by hundreds of customers annually.
