Nanofabrication of Materials

  • EG&G VMP2Z multichannel potentiostat and a Princeton 273A Potentiostat/Galvanostat for electrodeposition
  • Pulsed Laser Ablation Deposition System, a Pulsed Excimer-500 Laser (Lumonics Co.) operating at the wavelengths range from 155 to 780 nm
  • APX Scientific Microlayer 400 sputtering systems (10-10 Torr range) with six 3? magnetron guns which are in co-deposition configuration and can be operated in DC or RF modes. The system has a potential of producing even very complex nanowires structures
  • Four Glove box Systems (Model VAC100029) for catalyst fabrication
  • Furnaces:  Eight Lindberg/Blue M box furnaces (1100°C max.) and ten Lindberg/Blue M tube furnaces (1100°C max.) most with programmable controllers; two Thermolyne tube furnaces (1200°C max.) with single set point controllers. Two vacuum ovens, one high temperature (1500°C max.) box furnace and one high temperature (1500°C max.) tube furnace
  • NAPCO 2028R Multi-Functional Centrifuge
  • Controlled atmosphere dryboxes:  MBRaun two-person dry box with moisture and oxygen sensors, hydraulic press, and video microscope. Several VAC Atmospheres argon-filled drybox, one fitted with an Illinois Instruments oxygen sensor
  • Controlled atmosphere dryboxes: MBRaun two-person dry box with moisture and oxygen sensors, hydraulic press, and video microscope. Several VAC Atmospheres argon-filled drybox, one fitted with an Illinois Instruments oxygen sensor
  • High vacuum line for sealing glass tubes for annealing and synthesis
  • RPR-200 Rayonet UV Reactor System
