2019 CAS Research Instrumentation Program
The College of Arts & Sciences launched a new Research Instrumentation program in 2016. The program required combined CAS and department contributions to purchase the following research instrumentation:
CERI: 60-node Zland Gen2 Seismic Data Acquisition System
More details soon
Chemistry: FlexStation 3 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader
The FlexStation is an 8-channel automated pipettor that can read mutiwell plates in absorbance, luminescence, fluorescence and fluorescence polarization modes. Details on the FlexStation
Chemistry: Tycho NT.6 Nanotemper Differential Scanning Fluorimeter
The Tycho NT.6 measures the change in intrinsic fluorescence of tyrosine and tryptophan residues in protein samples. Details on the Tycho NT.6 Nanotemper Differential Scanning Fluorimeter
Earth Sciences: Global Positioning System )One Trimble Geo7 unit and 15 Trimble TDS 100 units)
These GPS units allow for rapid mapping and spatial data collection for a wide range of field applications. Read the Usage Policy
Physics: High energy kHz laser system for optical spectroscopy
The laser system allows for the measurements of physical and chemical processes that occur at nanosecond to microsecond time scales. Additional details for the laser system.
Physics: Seebeck Unit-Thermoelectric power Measurement
The system can provide information about the sign of the majority carrier, the mechanism of charge conduction, and in conjunction with appropriate theoretical models, information on the band structure of the material under investigation. Details on the Seebeck Unit
Additional information can be found on the College of Arts & Sciences Website.
