Materials and Molecular Analysis (MMA)
Formerly known as the Central Instrument Facility (CIF)
The MMA creates a stimulating and collaborative environment so that students can learn and drive new research discoveries.
Provides expertise and instrumentation for the measurement of material properties like thermal stability and transitions, specific heat, magnetic AC and DC susceptibility, electrical and thermal transport properties, and paramagnetic properties.
Provides expertise and instrumentation for molecular mass measurements and structural elucidation of small molecules, biomolecules and nanomaterials, as well as workflows and data analysis strategies for targeted and untargeted LC-MS and GC-MS metabolomics studies.
A variety of NMRs with pulsed field gradients and a variety of probes for doing nearly any high resolution NMR method and micro-imaging.
Provides expertise and instrumentation for spectroscopic measurements (transmittance, scattering, absorbance, steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence) in solution and solid forms in the UV-Vis spectral range.
Imaging & Surface Science
Now part of the ARC Imaging and Surface Science Center.
X-ray Diffraction and Scattering
Tools for studying surface layers or thin film structures, single crystals, powders, and solids.
