Light scattering and organic electronics research groupFacilities
Our research laboratory has two components: one for optical spectroscopy and the other for growth/fabrication and electrical characterization of organic devices.
The optical spectroscopy laboratory is equipped with ( 1 ) Coherent Innova 6 argon-ion laser; ( 2 ) SPEX 1403 double stage monochromator with a PMT detector and a state-of-the art CCD detector; ( 3 ) Newport optical tables; ( 4 ) 2 APD He closed-cycle cryostat capable of both optical and electrical characterization; ( 5 ) Janis-ST500 continuous flow microscope cryostat; ( 6 ) Renishaw micro-Raman/Raman imaging spectrometer equipped with a near IR diode laser (785 nm) and a green (514 nm) argon ion laser; ( 7 ) Linkham heating/freezing stage for the microscope; ( 8 ) HeCd laser and Ar ion laser; ( 9 ) three Oceanoptics spectrometers; ( 10 ) CVI monochromator, Xenon/halogen lamp; ( 11 ) dynamic light scattering system.
The growth/fabrication laboratory is equipped with ( 1) Keithley sourcemeters (236 and 2400 units) interfaced to a computer; ( 2) two manual probe station; ( 3) HP precision LCR meter for C-V and G-V analysis ( 4) glove box enclosed spin coater and a thermal evaporator from MBraun Inc.
Additionally, we have access to FTIR spectrometers in the general optics labortaory.
