Facilities

Used for the efficient and gentle removal of solvents from samples by evaporation.
Designed to enhance the ability to perform chemical reactions under controlled conditions on a laboratory scale.
Solvent purification system which can be configured up to 7 solvents. Unique features include glovebox integration ready piping, integrated vapor hood with 4” ventilation exhaust port, double column filtration, 17 L solvent reservoir and independent regulators for each solvent line.
A short-path vacuum distillation apparatus typically used to distill relatively small amounts of compounds with high boiling points (usually > 300 °C) under greatly reduced pressure.
Used to perform very precise electrochemical measurements such as cyclic voltammograms, charge-discharge curves and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.
Equipped with a USB digital image camera, and comes with a quintuple nosepiece, seven levels of infinitive plan objectives (5X/0.12, 10X/0.25, 20X/0.4, 50X/0.75, 100X/0.9, 40X/0.65, and 100X/1.25). Also, equipped with a built-in polarizer & analyzer and a dark field-viewing device. Capable of both reflected (EPI) & transmitted illuminations.
Equipped with "touch-screen" digital control with which the dipping rate, pulling rate, dwell time, and cycle life can be setup.
Used for the measurement of the size, electrophoretic mobility of proteins, zeta potential of colloids and nanoparticles, and optionally the measurement of protein mobility and microrheology of protein and polymer solutions.
A freeze drying system designed to handle all lyophilization needs.
Can run almost all polymer, solvent and temperature combinations, with full automation and advanced detection, from ambient up to 220 °C.
Used to probe the electronic structure of materials in a non-contact and nondestructive way. Suited for compositional analysis of compound semiconductors, defect evaluation of light-emitting materials and evaluation of various diode materials.
