The Shimadzu Center for Environmental, Forensics, and Material Science harnesses the power of the most up-to-date technology for the study of major and trace element analysis, contaminant detection, and material structures. Instrumentation includes multiple X-ray platforms and electron microprobe analyzer; atomic absorption, inductively coupled plasma emission and fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Further enhanced by particle size analyzers from the nano- to micro-scale and total organic carbon analyzers. The facility has applications in homeland security, environmental science, geological science, and material engineering. This facility will be available for use in the spring of 2014.
