Instruments list

The department also maintains licenses for computational and modeling software packages for theoretical investigations.

Individual investigators’ labs are equipped for carrying out investigations using such techniques as liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry, capillary electrophoresis, atomic force microscopy, single-photon counting, impedance spectroscopy, liquid chromatography/ electrochemistry, ellipsometry, and Raman spectrometry.system, solid-state NMR, live cell fluroescence imaging, cell and tissue culture, confocal laser scanning microscopy. AutoQuant deconvolution and associated mini tower platforms as well as a Linux cluster for high-end computational chemistry are also in use by individual research groups. Several groups are also equipped with glove boxes for work under dry and/or inert atmospheric conditions.

In addition to access to research facilities in the Chemistry Department, individual research groups have access to a broad range of fabrication, testing, and characterization equipment through the department’s associations with the Institute for Soft Matter Synthesis and Metrology, the Georgetown Nanoscience and Microtechnology Laboratory, the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, or the Biomedical Graduate Research Organization.”

The department employs full-time electronics and instrumentation specialists for assistance with design and implementation of research equipment.
