Physical Sciences Facilities
CREAIT labs related to the physical sciences:
C-CART provides research support, training and chemical analysis services to undergraduate and graduate students, university researchers, government agencies and private sector R&D companies.
The instruments associated with C-CART are grouped into four service areas: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), X-Ray Crystallography (XRD), Mass Spectrometry, and Materials Characterization.
This facility provides researchers with access to a variety of computing engines for imaging, modeling and simulation, together with a 3D immersive large-screen visualization room, and associated large format plotters.
The Earth Resources Research and Analysis (TERRA) Facility is housed in the Department of Earth Sciences. TERRA provides chemical and physical analyses using a variety of instrumentation and analytical methods, including ICP-MS, XRF, XRD, EPMA, TIMS, and a variety of isotopic analytical methods.
MAF-IIC specializes in high-resolution imaging and in-situ microbeam chemical analysis and age dating of minerals and other materials such as environmental and archaeological samples. The Facility has ongoing research and development projects on ore characterization for metallurgy and advanced mineral exploration but aims to support a wide range of research throughout the university and beyond.
