The W.M. Keck NanoEngineering Laboratory is uniquely positioned to support DNA nanotechnology research. The lab is equipped with low temperature storage facilities, DNA-based processing equipment and fluorescence imaging systems.
The Surface Science Lab is equipped with a table top scanning electron microscope (SEM) and 3 atomic force microscopes (AFMs) capable of a variety of scanning probe microscopy techniques invaluable for interdisciplinary research on material systems and devices.
The Nanophotonics Lab includes a number of pulsed laser sources with pulse widths ranging from mode-locked 30 fs, 1ps, to Q-switched 2 ns. All sources cover the visible to near infrared wavelength through the use of optical parametric oscillator or amplifier.
