Microscopes, Spectrometers, Surface Analysis, and other equipment
Olympus SZ11 Zoom Stereo Optical Microscope (Clark D-22)
73 mm working distance microscope with 18X—110X total magnification range. This microscope has a 45º binocular observation tube angle and is equipped with a CCD camera and monitor. Frame capture software is also available for the capture of non-RGB images.
Shimadzu UV-3600PC UV/Vis/Near-IR Spectrophotometer (Clark D-21)
Wavelength range 190—3200 nm. Samples can be analyzed in transmission, absorption, reflection. Large-sample compartment (12-inch diameter maximum) with integrating sphere for measurement of opaque, translucent, or turbid materials (optical materials, semiconductors, glass, plastics, foods, etc.). 0.3 nm UV-Vis resolution, 1.6 nm near-IR resolution.
Quantum Design SQUID MPMS (Clark D22)
The MPMS-XL7 SQUID magnetometer (link to http://www.qdusa.com/products/mpms.html) measures a sample’s magnetic moment under a wide range of applied magnetic fields and temperatures. Both DC and RSO (reciprocating sample option) measurements are available, the latter allowing measurements of moments in the 10^-6 (please make -6 superscript if possible) emu range. The maximum applied field is 7 tesla (70,000 Oe) and the available temperature range is 2 - 400 K. Automated test sequences allow scanning of field (M-H loops), temperature, or both. A wide variety of sample types can be tested, including solids, liquids, and powders/nanoparticles. The SQUID is generally available in odd-numbered months (January, March, etc.); special accommodations can be made for urgent needs in other months.
X-ray Photoelectron Spectrometer (XPS) (Operated by CCMR)
Surface analysis technique for elemental identification and quantification using single-energy x-ray photons. A photoelectron spectrum is created by measuring energies of electrons ejected from a sample. More information on XPS
