This seminar summarizes the capabilities of the high accuracy Kevin G. Hall Laboratory which is located in Purdue’s newly completed Birck Nanotechnology Center. The seminar is primarily intended for anyone interested in designing, building and characterizing a high accuracy room for nanoscience research. The talk will summarize the design specifications and character-ization the Hall Laboratory. Relevant issues related to electrical power, vibration isolation, thermal stability, acoustic isolation, and EMI shielding will be discussed. The talk will conclude with a few lessons learned.
