Equipment & Instruments

Below is the list of some of the equipment & instruments that I have work with over the course of my graduate research work. Some of the instruments are available either in my research lab (Nanomanufacturing Lab- Western Michigan University) or other partnering labs at the university. A few instruments were used at outside facilities such as Argonne National Labs (ANL) and Oak Ridge National Labs (ORNL).
