Three FT-IR spectrometers (one with a long pathlength gas cell)
FT-IR microscope from Bruker
Raman microscope from Bruker with both dispersive and FT detection
Varian Spectra A-10 atomic absorption instrument
Varian 1000 atomic absorption/atomic emission instrument
Agilent 7500 inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer
Conjugated dye laser (Lexel 350)
Argon ion laser (Lexel 95)
Hollow cathode sputter source
