Facilities

The EPI and Lehigh University are well-equipped with the specialty instrumentation required for advanced research in polymer and colloidal science. Please feel free to inquire for a specific testing instrument you might need but not listed on this site. In addition to traditional analytical chemistry instrumentation, EPI has capabilities specific to emulsion polymers and colloidal science, such as:

  • Emulsion polymer reaction vessle set up
  • Emulsification Equipment - Sonifier, Homogenizer, & Microfluidizer
  • Acoustic Particle Sizer (APS; Matec)
  • Dynamic Light Scattering
  • Conductometric & Potentiometric Titration Equipment
  • Optical Microscope, multiple, including state of the art laser-confocal microscopy and optical tweezer

 

We also have access to other campus facilities, include:

 

  • Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
  • Microcalorimetry
  • Atomic Force/Scanning Tunneling Microscope (Thermomicroscopes)
  • Dynamic Mechanical Spectroscopy (DMS)
  • Tensile Testing (Instron)
  • Microelectrophoresis
  • Phillips¬† 400 Electron Microscopes
  • ETEC Scanning Electron Microscope
  • Zeiss 1550 Electron Microscope with EDX and Environmental capability
  • JEOL 6300 F Scanning Electron Microscope
  • FTIR
  • NMR -360 and 500 MHz Bruker liquid
  • NMR- 300 MHz GE solid-state
  • X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (Scienta ESCA-300)

We also work with out partners to device custome set-up. Please contact us for details.
