The Dietrich School Machine Shop ensures the high-quality design, fabrication, and repair of equipment and instrumentation. The shop specializes in both CNC and traditional machining across of variety of materials and is involved in the design and fabrication of diverse equipment to specification, including ultrahigh vacuum systems, high-pressure vessels, and specialized measurement devices.
In Professor Gurudev Dutt's lab, research focuses on the quantum control of condensed matter systems. His lab contains two optical setups with the ability to take photoluminescence images both at room and cryogenic temperatures as well as a magnetic measurement area. It is located on the second floor of Old Engineering Hall.
Visit the Hatlab, which is located in Old Engineering Hall on the Pitt campus.
Professor Michael Hatridge's lab contains a fabrication area with a custom aluminum evaporator for Josephson junction fabrication and a measurement area with a full suite of microwave characterization tools and dilution refrigerators, where the group develops techniques to create, manipulate, and measure microwave light and use it to entangle larger quantum systems
The Laboratory for Advanced Materials at Pittsburgh (LAMP) under the direction of Professor Paul W. Leu, focuses on designing and understanding advanced materials by computational modeling and experimental research.
Tour the Levylab, which spans two floors of the Van de Graaff Building on the Pitt campus.
The mission of the Levy Research Group is to explore novel phenomena in solid state systems in order to provide the physical foundation for future technologies.
Tour Susan Fullerton's Nanoionics and Electronics Laboratory in 813 Benedum Hall on the Pitt campus.
The mission of the Fullerton research group is to establish a fundamental understanding of ion-electron transport at the molecular level, and use this knowledge to design next-generation electronic devices at the limit of scaling for memory, logic, and energy storage.
The NFCF supports the fabrication and characterization of nanoscale materials and structures, and integration of devices at all length scales. The facility houses advanced equipment with core nano-level (20 nm or below) capability for fabrication and characterization, including electron-beam lithography system, dual-beam system, plasma etching, thin film deposition, TEM, multifunctional scanning probe station, modular XRD, and more.
