The equipment we use in our lab includes but is not limited to:

  • Ti:sapphire laser tunable from approximately 750-1000nm
  • Mode-locked ti:sapphire laser capable of producing pulses of about 30 femtoseconds
  • Superconducting magnet capable of producing magnetic fields of 7 Tesla and temperatures of 1.5 K
  • Electromagnet capable of producing magnetic fields of 1.3 Tesla
  • Cryostat that gets below 4 K
  • Three different spectrometers
  • Vacuum systems
  • Lock-in amplifiers
  • Various other supporting instruments

The Lab:

In 2008 we moved into BYU's remodeled Underground Lab. We decided it would be fun to make a time-lapse movie show the move (requires Flash player).
