The CFES Energy Materials and Devices Lab (CFES-EMDL) consists of a suite of tools for fabricating, processing, characterizing and testing a variety of materials and device structures for new energy applications.
EMDL will provide many new directions in several research projects in the area of energy/nano materials synthesis, energy/nano materials characterization, energy and electronic device fabrication and testing. This central facility is perfectly suited to support collaborations and sponsored research projects.
- Photovoltaic Test Bench. Efficiency, power factor, current-voltage and spectral response/quantum efficiency from 350 nm to 1800 nm.
- Battery & Ultracapacitor Fabrication & Testing Station.Coin cell fabrication in programmable glow box, Charge/discharge cycle testing, Cyclic voltammetry and impedance spectrometry
- Spectrophotometric Facility. Absorption, transmittance and reflectance of light from 175 to 17000 nm
- BET/Sorption Analysis Facility. Physisorption, chemisorptions, vaporsorption, BET surface analysis, mass spectrometer, and hydrogen storage characteristics of nanoporous materials
- Rapid Wet Chemical Processing
- Environmental controlled spin coater, dip coater for low cost energy device fabrication
