Nanoscale Component Fabrication

  • Four Glove Box Systems (Model VAC100029) for nanoparticle fabrication
  • Furnaces: Eight Lindberg Tube Furnaces box furnaces (1100°C) and ten Lindberg/Blue M tube furnaces (1100°C) max. One high temperature furnace (1600°C)
  • Pulsed laser deposition system. The neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser was used to evaporate the target materials. The laser wavelength, energy density, and pulse frequency were 266 nm, 2 J/cm2, and 2 Hz, respectively
  • Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) system for nanowire synthesis
  • EG&VMP2Z multichannel potentiostat and a Princeton 273A Potentiostat /Galvanostat for electrodeposition
  • NaPCO 2028R Muti-Functional Centrifuge
  • Controlled atmosphere dryboxes:  MBRaun two-person dry box with moisture and oxygen sensors, hydraulic press, and video microscope
  • RPR-200 Rayonet UV Reactor System
