Dedicated Equipment
Equipment within Access
In addition to the equipment listed above, we have access to various pieces of equipment (e.g., Transmission Electron Microscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluroescence, X-ray Diffraction, etc.) at the Frederick Seitz Materials Research Lab and Beckman Institute for Advanced Science & Technology. We also routinely utilize various techniques (e.g., Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emissions Spectroscopy, CHN Analysis, ThermoGravimetric Analysis, MicroCalorimetry, Physisorption, Solid-state and Liquid-phase NMR, etc.) at the School of Chemical Sciences Microanalysis Lab and NMR Lab.
