LED – Laboratory of Electrochemistry and Diffusion

Professors: Taise Matte ManhaboscoRonaldo J. C. Batista and Alan Barros Oliveira


The Laboratory of Electrochemical and Diffusion is a part of Physics Department of Federal University of Ouro Preto.

Research interests are ceramic, polymeric and metallic thin or ultrathin films as well as ceramics for magnetic applications. We perform different techniques like electrodeposition, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, electron beam evaporation and diffusion.

Research projects:

  • Electrodeposition of Hydroxyapatatite with incorporation of nanostrucutures
  • Deposition of diamond-like carbon
  • Polyaniline with incorporation of nanostrucutures
  • Production and characterization of BiFeO3 doped ceramics


  • Muffle furnace (Electro Therm : 1300°C) (INTI furnace - 1600 °C) (furnaces: 1200 ºC));

  • Potentiostat/Galvanostat Autolab (with Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy);

  • Potentiostat/Galvanostat Microquímica;

  • water distiller system

  • analytical balances

  • pH meter

  • ultrasonic bath

  • cutting machine

  • automatic grinder/polisher

  • hydraulic press 15 ton
