Nanosystems Laboratory


NanoSystems Laboratory (NSL) is a campus-wide user facility providing the OSU material science community with cutting-edge characterization equipment. The instruments available at NSL include, but are not limited to: a state-of-the-art dual beam Focused Ion Beam/Scanning Electron Microscope (FIB/SEM) with capabilities for electron beam lithography, in situ nanomanipulation, and EDS X-ray microanalysis, a high-resolution triple axis X-ray Diffractometer, two Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) Magnetometers, two Atomic Force/Magnetic Force Microscopes (AFM/MFM), a new Chemical Vapor Deposition System for diamond growth, three Physical Property Measurement Systems (PPMS) for high-magnetic-field electric and magnetic measurements, one of which has a PPMS-compatible cryogenic AFM/MFM, two Terahertz Spectrometers, an Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectrometer, and a rapid turnaround system for low-temperature magnetotransport measurements. In addition, NSL operates a Class 1000 clean room with instruments such as a Langmuir-Blodgett trough for molecular monolayer deposition, a combined magnetron sputtering/electron beam thin film deposition system, and a laser writer for mask-free photo lithography.
