Detailed user information is available for software and major instrumentation at the links below. Training on other instrumentation (UV-Vis, FTIR, fluorescence, etc.) can be arranged with faculty or graduate students familiar with the equipment.
Information for installation and use of commonly used software (MNova, Pasco, BioChemDraw), including information on using WFU licenses.
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)
The deparment has two Bruker Ascend 400 MHz NMR instruments, one located at both the Salem Hall and Wake Downtown locations.
X-ray facilities include (1) single crystal analysis with an APEX CCD diffractometer system with a Bruker KryoFlex low temperature stage, (2) powder diffraction with a D2PHASER Desktop, and (3) a multi-purpose D8 DISCOVER with DaVinci which can be configured for a wide variety of materials research applications.
Trace Element Center
Elemental analysis can be conducted down to the ppb level using the centers (1) Agilent 8800 ICP-MS/MS, (2) Agilent 4200 MP-AES, (3) Agilent 5110 ICP OES and (4) Ethos Up Microwave-Assisted Digestion (MAD) system (Milestone)
Scanning electron microscopy (SEM)
A Zeiss GeminiSEM 300 is capable high-resolution field effect scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), and is equipped with a Bruker EDS for elemental resolution.
