Labs & Instrumentation

Our 120,000 square-foot facility includes laboratories for chemistry, physics, and materials science. 

Materials Design

  • Wet chemistry labs for small-molecule organic and polymer synthesis
  • Formulation development and optimization
  • Polymer composite processing
  • Particle formation
  • Coatings and films

Analysis

  • Fully equipped analytical lab for characterization and method development, including:
    • Liquid chromatography (HPLC, LC-MS, GPC
    • Gas chromatography (GC and headspace-GC)
    • Thermochemical analysis (DSC, TGA)
    • Chemical composition (CHNS analysis, ICP-AES, sulfur)
  • Microscopy lab with SEM, TEM, optical and video microscopy
  • Particle size, size distribution and morphology measurement
  • Mechanical analysis (tensile strength, DMA)
  • Surface science (contact angle, surface area)

Application Validation

Printed Electronics Lab
