During my career I became familiar with the following preparation techniques and techniques of measurement:

- luminescence spectroscopy (emission and excitation spectra)

- absorption spectroscopy

- infrared  spectroscopy

- laser spectroscopy

- low temperature spectroscopy at 77 – 4K (emission and absorption)

- measurements of decay times

- the sol- gel and Pechini’s technique

- crystallography

- solid state chemistry
