Inamori School of Engineering

Spectroscopy Laboratories
Hall of Glass Science, Room 108

Students using equipmentIn our comprehensive spectroscopy facilities, materials are examined with electromagnetic radiation ranging from radio waves to X-rays. Available techniques include UV-vis-IR spectroscopy, electron spin resonance (ESR), x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), spectroscopic ellipsometry, inductively coupled plasma (ICP) spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy, Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, bulk Raman spectroscopy, and Laser Confocal Raman spectroscopy. Undergraduate students can gain hands-on experience with many of these techniques in a 2-credit spectroscopy course.

With proper training, students are permitted full access to most of the equipment to conduct senior thesis and graduate research projects.
