Instrumentation

Our analytical instrumentation centers, located in Naito and Bauer Laboratories, provide a convenient location for many of the Department's sophisticated and powerful research tools. These include nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers; an electron paramagnetic resonance spectrometer; a small molecule mass spectrometer; a SQUID-based magnetic property measurement system, and single crystal and powder X-ray diffractometers.

The nearby Laboratory for Integrated Science and Engineering holds facilities for nanofabrication, materials synthesis, imaging, and computer analysis and design of nanoscale systems. Instrumentation includes:  ellipsometers; scanning electron, transmission electron, optical, and environmental scanning electron microscopes; focused ion beam systems; chemical and physical vapor deposition systems; furnaces; and equipment for surface analysis, thermal analysis, advanced optical imaging, and lithography.

Also nearby is the Small Molecule Mass Spectrometry Facility, which offers support for the analysis of a wide variety of analytes using mass spectrometry based techniques.
