Materials Synthesis and Processing Lab

Location: 3347 Hoover Hall

The Materials Synthesis and Processing Laboratory is used by introductory MatE laboratory classes, senior design groups, and researchers. As the name suggests, this lab is widely used for synthesis and sample preparation using pellet presses and box furnaces. Mechanical characterization of ceramic materials is possible with a small-scale universal testing machine. Researchers and upper-level undergraduate courses may use the GPC and Zetasizer Nano-NS for molecular characterization of synthetic and natural polymers and proteins.

For equipment questions, lab concerns, safety problems, or general help in this room, contact the lab coordinator.
