A 13,000 sq. ft. facility for Energy and Electronics Devices Manufacturing with state-of-the-art and unique equipment has been established

Additional advanced characterization facilities are available through our affliation with the Texas Center for Superconductivity at University of Houston (TCSUH)

A partial list of materials characterization tools that is available include JEOL JSM-6330F scanning electron microscope (SEM) with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), electron backscattered diffraction (EBSD), LEO 1525 Field Emission SEM, JEOL JEM-2000 and JEOL JEM-2010F Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEM), the latter with Gatan 666 Parallel Electron Energy Loss Spectrometer (EELS), Bruker D5000 X-ray Diffractometer (XRD) and Bruker GADDS XRD, JEOL JXA8600 Microprobe equipped four wavelength dispersive spectrometers (WDS), Veeco Dimension 3100 Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), and PHI Model 5700 X-Ray Photoelectron Spectrometer (XPS).

New equipment are also being procured through the recently awarded $ 3.5 M Emerging Technology Fund from the state of Texas ( )
