LAMFI occupies an approximate area of 240 m2 in the IFUSP Van der Graaff Building. The main equipments of the LAMFI are an electrostatic Pelletron-Tandem, 5SDH Accelerator with maximum terminal voltage of 1.7MV, produced by National Electrostatic Co. USA, two ion sources (Alphatross and SNICS-II) and three analytical setups, one of them with an external beam, coupled to a XYZ 3D robotic table with 60 cm of span in each axys and high precision (5μm). LAMFI also houses a sample preparation laboratory whith a TROX laminar flow hood, a chemical hood for the handling of volatile substances. It also contains a precision laboratory scale and laboratory equipment for preparation of emulsions and samples, such as thermal bath, centrifuge, ultrasonic bath, etc.
