The Chemical Instrumentation Facility anticipates the arrival of a Bruker ELEXYS E580 FT-EPR system in late spring 2013. The new EPR will have both CW and pulsed/FT X-band capabilities. The new system will be located in 1708 Gilman Hall. Currently, 1702-1708 Gilman houses two NMR spectrometers and a Micromeritics ASAP 2020 Physisorption BET used primarily by researchers in Chemistry, Materials Science & Engineering, and Chemical & Biological Engineering. The location of the E580 EPR in 1708 Gilman will allow for easy access to researchers from a variety of departments on central campus. Existing helium recovery lines will be used in conjunction with the EPR low temperature accessory. Access to the room is controlled by ISU card and can be obtained by filling out an Access Request Form and returning it to 1234 Hach.
