Scientists working in SSIM’s Electronic Materials Integrated Technology Lab can create almost any material known to Nature—and some that Nature has never met before. These exotics are rapidly micromachined using excimer and other lasers into prototype “lab-chips” and other devices.

Raman Lab

The Raman Lab, containing various Raman systems, is integrated with super resolution imaging and atomic force microscopy, fully automated immunoassay machines and a gene-sequencing system for genetic analysis in real-time.

Characterization Lab

The Characterization Lab is where an atomic force microscope (AFM), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) machines and other technologies enable materials to be understood and exploited at atomic scales.

Microfabrication Lab

The Microfabrication Lab is used for building microfluidic chips, micro Raman systems, optical components and more. The lab includes machines that can fabricate human-designed materials never before seen in nature.

Class 100 Cleanroom and BSL (BioSafety Level) 2 Lab

The Class 100 cleanroom is used for culturing human, bacterial and animal cell lines with the highest levels of safety.

Design Lab

The Design Lab is equipped with computational tools for Raman analysis including “deep learning” artificial intelligence algorithms for real-time identification of pathogens and toxins from Raman signatures. Bio-integration Lab (with integrated class 100 cleanroom)
