Our organisation

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) under the auspices of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, and its mission is to develop competitive and market-oriented prototypes of products and services for public and private stakeholders.

With more than 710 employees, 78% of whom are researchers or innovators from all over the world, LIST is active in the fields of information technology, materials, space resources and the environment, and works across the entire innovation chain, from basic and applied research to technology incubation and transfer.

By transforming scientific knowledge into intelligent technologies, data and tools, LIST:

  • helps European citizens make informed choices
  • helps public authorities make decisions
  • encourages companies to develop
Our role in the project

Within SSbD4CheM, LIST is developing instrumentation and workflows for high spatial resolution secondary ion mass spectrometry imaging (SIMS). Using novel cryo FIB-SIMS advanced imaging capabilities, workflows will be developed to assess physicochemical properties of final materials, e.g., fabrics for visualizing layer thickness, uniformity, eventual impurities, etc.
