The Laboratory for Molecular Photonics occupies approximately 1,500 square feet of space within the Nanoscience Laboratory of the University of Miami and, in addition to four hoods and standard equipment for chemical synthesis, houses:

  an absorption spectrometer (Varian Cary 100 Bio);

  an electrochemical workstation (CH Instruments 660);

  an electrophoretic system (VWR Mini 10 Gel System);

  an emission spectrometer (Varian Cary Eclipse);

  a flash photolysis apparatus (Ultrafast Systems Kronos);

  a high-performance liquid chromatographic system (Shimadzu Nexera X2);

  an illumination system (Spectral Energy Corporation LH150)

  a pH meter (Corning Scholar 425);

  a photoreactor (Luzchem LCZ-5);

  a scanning tunneling microscope (nanoSurf AG easyScan);

  a spin coater (Chemat Technology KW-4A);

  a stereoscopic microscope (National 400TBL);

  an ultrapure water system (Barnstead International NANOpure Diamond Analytical).


Members of the Laboratory for Molecular Photonics have access to the shared facilities of the Department of Chemistry of the University of Miami, which consist of:

  a dynamic light scattering apparatus (Malvern ZEN1600);

  an electron spin resonance spectrometer (Bruker 200D);

  an environmental scanning electron microscope (Philips XL30 ESEM-FEG);

  two infrared spectrometers (Perkin Elmer 2000 FT-IR and Paragon 1000);

  an isothermal microcalorimeter (Calorimetry Sciences Corporation 4400);

  a matrix-assisted laser desorption mass spectrometer (Bruker Biflex IV);

  three nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers (Bruker DPX 300, Avance 400 and Avance 500);

   a thermo microbalance (Netzsch TG209F3);

   a transmission electron microscope (Philips EM 300);

   a X-ray diffractometer (Bruker SMART 1000).
