This modestly sized 925 square feet facility houses approximately $2.8 million of sophisticated equipment to perform studies and investigation of the structure, chemical properties, physical properties, microstructure and nanostructure of advanced materials. The laboratory provides excellent opportunities for performing highly advanced research studies in the field of Materials Engineering.
Major equipment includes Zeiss Ultra 55 FESEM and Oxford EDAX/EBSD, a multi channel spectroscope system supporting Auger Surface Analysis X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy and AUGER electron spectroscopy, a JEOL Scanning Electron Microscope, an atomic force microscope, KEVEX - EDA Microprobe Chemical Analysis System, and Ultrasonic Flaw Detector with 3D scanner. Other equipment includes Buehler Image Analysis System, Micromet Microhardness Tester, SPI Sputtering System, Dilatometer, Ecomet 6 Metallography, and Analytical Balance.
The Laboratory supports faculty research, the Materials Engineering Undergraduate Research Program, and instruction in several courses, including the basic Engineering Materials Laboratory course, Mechanical Behavior of Materials, and graduate classes in Corrosion, Thin Film Technology, Failure Analysis, Biomaterials, and Nanaomaterials & nanotechnology.
