The target laboratory has different  locations at its disposal: A temperature-stabilized and moisture-stabilized laboratory, a laboratory for chemical and mechanical processing, and the Radioaktive Lab where weak radioactive materials can be handled. Targets are produced by evaporation, by sputtering, by mechanical processing, and by cold rolling. Especially sensitive respectively weak radioactive materials like depleted Uranium or Thorium can also be cold rolled and packed in a glove box in the Radioactive Lab. For storage and transport there are desiccators and sealable ampoules available as well as a clean box.

The target laboratory has the following possibilities for the production, processing and measuring of targets:

High-vacuum machines with the possibility to

Electron-gun Evaporation, Glow Discharging, Resistive Evaporation, Sputtering, Thermal Evaporation:

Mechanical processing

Cold Rolling, lapping, polishing, grinding, cutting:

Determination of thickness
