Description

Optical spectroscopy is a very powerful, noninvasive tool with application to research throughout the fields of condensed matter and materials science. Raman and infrared (IR) spectroscopies-as well as photoluminescence (PL) and its variations-will be used to study the properties of materials of interest. Recently, these materials have included high-temperature superconductors, CMR manganates, photo-magnets, semiconductors, and thermoelectrics. Our Raman and PL facilities include single, double, and triple grating spectrometers equipped with liquid nitrogen cooled charge coupled device multichannel detectors suitable throughout the visible spectrum. Our IR facility is based on a Fourier-transform system capable of 0.003cm-1 resolution and a variety of detectors to cover the entire IR spectrum. Peripheral facilities include a high field optical magnet, a diamond anvil cell for high-pressure studies, and furnaces for sample growth and annealing.
