General Information

Bruker D2PHASER and D8DISCOVER XRD SystemsState-of-the-art instrumentation is one of the hallmarks of the graduate program. Students benefit from direct interaction with two full-time Ph.D. level instrumentation managers, and can be personally trained in the operation of a wide range of instrumentation, including:

NMR and EPR (NMR Facility Link)

  • Bruker 400 MHz NMR Ascend magnet with 5mm Prodigy BBFO probe
  • Bruker 400 MHz NMR Ascend magnet with Smart BBO probe and InSightMR
  • Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectrometer

Advanced Mass Spectrometry (MassSpec Link)

  • Thermo LTQ-Orbitrap XL LC-MS equipped with an Accela Open 1200 UHPLC
  • Thermo Quantum Access Max Triple Quadruple MS
  • Bruker LC-MS Amazon SL ion trap with Shimadzu LC
  • Advion Compact LC-MS with TLC Express plate reader
  • Gas- and liquid-chromatography (including GC-MS and LC-MS)

Analytical and Trace Element (Trace Element Center Link)

  • Agilent 8800 ICP-MS/MS
  • Agilent 4200 MP-AES
  • Prodigy ICP OES (Teledyne Leeman Labs)
  • Gel and capillary electrophoresis systems

Materials Characterization (XRD Facility Link)

  • Zeiss Gemini300 FE-SEM with Bruker EDS
  • Bruker D8 Discover XRD
  • Bruker D2 Phaser Powder XRD
  • UV-visible, fluorescence, Raman and FTIR spectrometers
  • Electrochemical workstations and AM1.5G solar simulation

In addition, the department has important ties with many other departments on the main campus and at Wake Forest School of Medicine, thus fostering a truly interdisciplinary research environment.
