We have numerous laboratories equipped with research-grade apparatus dedicated to:

  • nano-materials synthesis
  • materials characterization by atomic force scanning probe and electron microscopy, spectrophotometry, custom apparatus for measurement of electrical and thermal transport properties (superconductors) at low temperatures
  • advanced sample preparation techniques for transmission and scanning electron microscopy
  • laser spectroscopy, interferometric, fiber optic and other photonics studies
  • astronomical imaging and instrument development
  • computational modelling of exotic magnetic systems and other many body events
  • high temperature superconductivity

Faculty also have ongoing work at leading national facilities such as Brookhaven National Laboratory and the Gemini Observatory.
