Ultraviolet Visible/ Near Infrared Spectroscopy

Cary 500 UV/Vis/NIR spectrophotometer

 

UV/Vis is used to analyze inorganic or organic compounds, biologically significant samples, liquids or solids.  This instrument has an accuracy of 0.1 nm in the UV/Vis range and 0.4 in the NIR range.  It has 0.00001 nm resolution, a 0-10 ABS range and the wavelength range is 3300 nm to 175 nm. 

FTIR

The Instrumentation Center Move

Hi All,

With the Renovations of Parsons Hall, comes the moving of equipment as well as labs and offices.

As time permits I (John Wilderman Manager) will be updating this page to chronical our move in the Instrumentation Center.

 Monday November 14th, 2011

Bill and I moving the ImagerThis is Bill Armstrong and I after getting the 400 MRI/Solids in place.
