Clark Atlanta University
CAU's Core Research Facility, the Nuclear Magnetic Center (NMR) and the Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry Center, are available to GRA members
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Center
Instrument: A Bruker AVANCE-III 500 MHz MHz superconducting magnet-based instrument provides state of-the-art NMR, both solid state and solution NMR facilities and includes multi-nuclear and multi- pulse experiments.
Instrument: Bruker AVANCE 400 MHz superconducting magnet-based instrument provides state of-the-art NMR facilities and includes multi-nuclear and multi pulse experiments.
Instrument: Bruker Dimension FastScan AFM (Atomic Force Microscope)
Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry Facility
Instrument: Hiden Analytical SIMS Plus Workstation
An electrostatic quadrupole-based analysis system equipped with cesium and oxygen primary beam sources, charge compensation, and a liquid nitrogen cold trap. This system is a user-friendly, semi-automated, turbo-pumped tool designed for fast sample turnaround. It has enhanced capabilities to handle a variety of materials. It is provisioned for depth profiling, imaging of chemical distributions, stoichiometry, 3-D chemical mapping, diffusion and dopant analysis, and isotopic analysis. The techniques supported are dynamic SIMS, static-SIMS, and SNMS.
