Core competencies

The AXES research group is part of the Chemistry Department and performs fundamental, methodological and
application-oriented research involving a wide range of analytical techniques. A recurring theme in our research is
the use of state-of-the-art methods for determination of low concentration levels and/or for imaging of (one or
multiple) analyte species. These methods are frequently (but not exclusively) applied to address environmental
problems.

The research activities of the AXES research group comprise:

Fundamental and applied (bio)electrochemical research
Development of (electro)analytical strategies for selective detection, quantitation and monitoring of low
concentration levels of environmentally important compounds such as illicit drugs, explosives, antibiotics, and
other.
Elemental trace-analysis and bio-analytical imaging at the microscopic level in solid materials
X-ray micro- and nanobeam characterization of the electronic/redox properties of materials
Non-destructive hyperspectral imaging at the macroscopic level
Method, instrument and software development in the above areas.
