There are two offices and four different work stations for data acquisitions and advanced numerical simulations for this laboratory. Lab members also have access to multi-user centers of UW-Madison such as the Materials Science Center (MSC) and the Plant Imaging Center (PIC), as well as other research groups’ laboratories such as Professor Frank Pfefferkorn's Laser-Assisted Multi-Scale Manufacturing Lab (LAMSML). The instruments listed below represent some of the newest, most advanced, and most frequently used instrumentation that our group has access too.
