Facilities

The University of Tulsa's Department of Physics and Engineering Physics has research facilities in the following areas:

  • The Optical Research Laboratory facilities include a narrow line width YAG-pumped dye laser, Argon-ion laser, a variety of static wavelength and tunable diode lasers, cavity ringdown spectrometer, CCD spectrometer, UV-Vis-NIR fiber optic spectrometers, vibration isolation tables, and associated optical components and mounts. (Drs. Holmstrom and Miller)
  • The Semiconductor Characterization Laboratory facilities include a low-field nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer, spectrophotometer, a fluorescent spectrometer, a sputter coater as well as capabilities to obtain I-V, transmission, and optical thickness, and photocurrent measurements. (Dr. Hari)
  • The Condensed Matter Laboratory includes facilities for ultrafast electrical characterization of dielectric materials, spin-coating fabrication of thin-film materials, and ultra-high vacuum rf-magnetron and e-beam sputtering of metals and oxides (Dr. Grigoriev)
  • The Condensed Matter (Dr. Wang) theory group has a 12-node cluster of computer processors equivalent to 96 processors, as well as access to experimental data and supercomputing facilities and collaborating research institutions.

In addition, research collaborations with the other engineering departments within the College, other universities, and with the National Laboratories, Research Institutions, and Industry provides the opportunity for access to a wide variety of instrumentation
