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.
to view a companion video tour of this facility.
Ron Reifenberger is currently a professor of Physics at Purdue
University and is a member of Purdue’s Center for Sensing Science and
Technology (CSST). He is also a member of Purdue’s Birck Nanotechnology
Center. Reifenberger received his PhD in Physics from the University of
Chicago in 1976 and has received the Distinguished Physics Alumni Award
from his alma mater, John Carroll University, in 1992. He is on the
Editorial Board of the Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. His
research is mainly focused on the development of new scanning probe
microscope techniques for the study the nanoscale properties of matter.
