Information Box Group
Well-equipped optics and optical engineering lab with tunable amplified ultrafast and short pulsed laser systems (Ti: Sapphire, OPO, fiber), laser micromachining systems, optical spectroscopy and temporal analysis instruments, and optical imagers covering UV to near infrared spectral region.
Dr. Leyla Soleymani’s Cellular and Molecular Sensing Laboratory (ETB 429) includes a Scanning Electrochemical Microscope, Electrochemical Workstations, Optical/Fluorescence Microscope, In-Situ Transmission Electron Microscopy Holder, Plasma Cleaner, Spin Coater, Automatic Craft Cutter, Manual Screen Printer, Laser Machining System, and Biological Safety Cabinet.
Biosafety Level 2 (BSL2) work space with tissue culture incubators, biosafety cabinet, biological sample storage (refrigerators and -80 degree freezers), and general web lab work bench.
Time-resolved fluorescence spectrometers with subnanosecond resolution, time- and Frequency-domain imaging instruments with picosecond resolution (streak camera and ICCD), spinning disc confocal microscope based on a Leica DP6000, a high throughput multiplexed confocal FLIM microscope (McFocal Gemini-1), and a STED superresolution microscope.
Professor Novog’s Nuclear Safety Laboratories provide a suite of flexible equipment for examining single and two-phase flows in a wide range of geometries. The lab is equipped with conventional process measurement and control systems as well as state-of-the-art phase-Doppler and laser-Doppler anemometers, time-resolved Particle Image Velocimeter, and 3d Impedance 3D tomography systems. Flow loops and power supplies up to 300kW are available for testing a range of flow and heat transfer phenomena under high-pressure and high-temperature conditions relevant to the nuclear industry. Past projects have included CHF and PDO testing under fast-transient condition, investigation of bubble fragmentation phenomena, two-phase heat transfer, and 3-D moderator flow and temperature measurements for both UNENE and the CANDU Owners Group.
JHE 322, 320, ABB B145
JHE 322 includes a Newport 96000 solar simulator with AM1.5G filter calibrated to 1 Sun, a nitrogen glovebox, and a laminar flow bench for chemical processing.
ABB B145 includes a micro-photoluminescence system with various sources (HeNe laser, Ar ion laser), detectors (Si CCD, InGaAs detector, InSb detector), and low temperature (10 K) cryostat.
BSB B203/A, BSB B201
In BSB B201 Dr. Bradley and his students focus on the characterization of silicon-based thin films and photonic devices. Using optical probe stations, photonic chips fabricated on campus are measured here to characterize their optical properties and optimize them for applications including high-speed communications and sensors.
