The framing of the project into priorities research domains of the National Strategy.
The framing of the project into the objectives of programme 7, Innovative materials, processes and products, and the specific objectives of the direction/ purpose of research 7.1 Advanced materials Modular structure, multiple utilisation ranges and working capabilities both as last generation high performance equipment devoted to the specific investigations and for usual high volume measurements permit to sent to the secondary direction 1.7 Nanoelectronics, photonics and micro-nanosystems.

The present infrastructure enter into strategic developing direction of IMT Bucharest, to consolidate infrastructure research in order to support domestic and international partenership and increasing the IMT offer of the high performance and quality scientific, technological and characterization services at the european level.

Many measuring technics are used:
1. X ray diffraction at large angles (WAXRD) with and without focalisation; with and without monocromatization, with and/or without analizor crystal;
2. X ray diffraction at low angles (SAXS); 3. X ray reflectivity XRR; 4. microdiffraction ( very small quantities of investigated material, X ray spot size 20-50 microns). With the system could be non destructive investigated and charcterised ( morphology, dimension of crystals, electronic density and distribution, density and type of defects) advanced materials, solide or liquids, crystaline or amorphous, multilayer structures, thin layers, nanomaterials.
