UW Facilities

Materials Science and Engineering Program

 

HRTEM Facility - High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy Facility

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.

Materials Characterization Laboratories

The Geology and Geophysics Department supports state-of-the-art instrumentation and laboratories for characterization of chemical composition, crystalline structure, and morphology of both natural and man-made solid materials. The Lab has an Electron Microprobe; an automated powder diffraction system, and a SEM equipped with a backscattered electron detector, a cathodoluminescence detector, and a light-element energy dispersive x-ray detector (capable of detection of elements with atomic number of 5 or greater) in addition to the standard secondary electron detector. We have recently added a Electron Backscatter Diffraction System (EBSD) (and colloidal polishing facility) to our SEM to provide a facility to measure the full 3-D crystallographic properties of materials.

Jenkins Microscopy Facility

The Jenkins Microscopy Facility is located in the Department of Zoology and Physiology (room 29 of the Biological Sciences Building). Its mission is to assist researchers and students in their imaging needs of fluorescence and electron microscopy; and to increase the use of microscopes in science education.

Macromolecular Core Equipment Facility

The MAC is a shared resource for research at the University of Wyoming. The MAC maintains a stable of scientific instruments which are available to anyone on campus.

Chemistry Department Instrumentation

The University of Wyoming Department of Chemistry boasts six primary facilities containing state-of-the-art instrumentation.

Geology and Geophysics Research Facilities

The University of Wyoming Department of Geology & Geophysics houses several research facilities containing state-of-the-art instrumentation.

Shell 3D Visualization Center

The EIC’s Shell 3D Visualization Center (Viz Center) proudly houses the only four-walled, 3D CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment) in Wyoming. The Viz Center beautifully complements the primary function of the EIC-- to enable scientists and engineers to visualize and interact with highly complex data sets.
