V. Clayton Lafferty Laboratory for Advanced Microsystems Research at Marquette University
The V. Clayton Lafferty Laboratory for Advanced Microsystems Research is the primary device test and characterization workspace for the Coutu Research Group. The lab contains various pieces of test equipment, assembly tools, probe stations, 3D printers etc.
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy and X-Ray Imaging Lab
Infrared Spectroscopy is used to gather an infrared spectrum of absorption from a solid, liquid or gas, leaving behind a unique molecular reading of the element to be analyzed. The Real Time X-Ray machine is used to take advanced images of small devices, such as circuit boards.
High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy – UW-Milwaukee
The High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy Lab at the UW-Milwaukee campus is used by the Coutu Research Group to look at and examine the surface and interfaces of thin films. This includes studying the vacancies, defects, and other nano-sized features of thin films.
Advanced Analysis Facility – UW-Milwaukee
The Advanced Analysis Facility of UW Milwaukee serves as a beacon for facility members, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as industries, to work with advanced technologies and equipment and to receive expert advice. The Advanced Analysis Facility specializes in: structure analysis, surface analysis, thermal analysis, mechanical analysis, nano particle characterization, chemical analysis, and corrosion testing.
