Our labs are in the SERF building. Optical laboratory is equipped with light scattering spectroscopy that includes (i) Raman spectroscopy (triple monochromator JY T64000, with confocal optical microscope and CCD-camera); (ii) Brillouin scattering spectroscopy (Tandem Fabry-Perot Interferometer, Sandercock model); (iii) Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (ALV correlator, equipped with cross-correlation options); (iv) Several ion and solid-state lasers. These spectrometers combined cover the entire frequency range from 1014 Hz down to 10-3 Hz. Dielectric spectroscopy lab is equipped with Novocontrol Concept-80 system that covers the frequency range from 109 Hz down to 10-5 Hz. The labs are equipped with cryostats and furnaces that cover temperature range from 80K up to 500K, with an optical anvil cells that provides pressure up to 2 GPa. Labs also have various equipments for samples preparation.
Our group has also experimental laboratories at the Oak Ridge National Lab that, in particular, include dielectric spectroscopy up to 5*1010 Hz, and dielectric spectroscopy under pressure up to 900 MPa; mechanical measurements and many other techniques.
