The University of Wyoming Department of Chemistry boasts five primary facilities containing state-of-the-art instrumentation.
The Department of Chemistry currently operates two state-of-the-art 600 MHz Bruker Avance III spectrometer (purchased in 2011, with solution and solid state capabilities), a 300 MHz Bruker AVANCE WB microimaging instrument with RheoNMR capability (purchased in 2013), a 400 MHz Bruker DRX-400 NMR spectrometer (purchased in 2011).
The Department of Chemistry currently operates Kratos Ultra DLD X-ray Photoemission Spectrometer (XPS). (Purchased in 2013)
The Department of Chemistry's Instrument Lab houses a Thermo-Electron LCQ Classic Electrospray Mass Spectrometer.
The Department of Chemistry operates EPR Bruker EMX spectrometer.
The Department of Chemistry owns a Bruker-AXS Smart Apex II CCD Diffractometer equipped with an Oxford Cobra Cryosystem.
The High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy (HRTEM)
Facility at the University of Wyoming features the powerful FEI Tecnai
G2 F20 200 kV (S)TEM
to meet the characterization needs of the materials science
community in the university and in the region. It offers up to atomic
resolution imaging and
complementary compositional analysis capability through
energy dispersive x-ray (EDX) spectrometry. This facility is made
possible with support from the
School of Energy Resources.
The instrumentation and laboratories for characterization of
chemical composition, crystalline structure, morphology, and fabric of
are housed in the Geology and Geophysics Department at the
University of Wyoming. The following instruments are available: Field
Electron Microscopy (FESEM), Conventional Scanning Electron
Microscopy (SEM), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), X-Ray Fluorescence Analysis
Probe Microanalysis (EPMA).
University of Wyoming has a state of the art Microscopy Core
Facility (MCF). The facility currently has a Transmission Electron
a Laser Scanning Confocal Fluorescence Microscope (Leica
TCS-SP2), an epi-fluorescence microscope (Nikon TE 300), a Raman
Microscope (DeltaNu ExamineR),
and a Tabletop Scanning Electron Microscope (Hitachi
