 Characterize your materials and devices adequately

There is more information in a DSSC device than one can imagine. Dyenamo opens for getting maximum information out of your devices by offering tests of new materials, components, and/or DSSC devices. A range of standard measurements and analysis based on our so-called tool-box techniques is available, such as:
