Nano Research Facility School of Engineering & Applied Science

The Jens Environmental Molecular and Nanoscale Analysis Laboratory, established in 2001, is located in Brauer Hall, Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering Department, Washington University in St. Louis. The Laboratory is a shared instrumentation facility supported by the core faculty in EECE. The instruments in the Laboratory are also made available to all university researchers and the scientific community for performing analysis at the molecular and nanometer scales.

One of the major functions of the Jens Molecular and Nanoscale Analysis Laboratory is in the training of students in the use of state of the art research instrumentation. The Laboratory technician, Patty Wurm, effectively trains students in the use of the instruments and how they can obtain and interpret quality data to support their research objectives.


Other Labs
The EECE Faculty has several other specialized laboratories with state of the art instrumentation for aerosol measurements, biological and molecular biological studies and other chemical reactor studies.


In Conclusion
All of these factors combine to make this facility an excellent resource not only for the students and Faculty in the Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering Department, but also to others in the Washington University community, and the scientific and technical community at large.
