Transport Characterization Laboratory

Our transport characterization laboratory consists of two Keithley characterization systems, an Agilent system, and variable temperature probing capabilities.

W. M. Keck Foundation nanoEngineering Lab

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.

Surface Science Lab

Nick & Amber @ FS 2
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.

Nanophotonics Lab

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.

Research and Information Center

The Research and Information Center houses computer workstations for research use along with a Linux database server and a high powered, parallel processing workstation.

Atomic Films Laboratory


The Atomic Films Laboratory is a state of the art thin film deposition and measurement laboratory. It features two atomic layer deposition systems, a physical deposition system, and a UHV STM.

Other Laboratories

Our group uses the capabilities of other Boise State laboratories such as the Idaho Microfabrication Laboratory and the Boise State Center for Materials Characterization.
