Photonics Facilities

  • COVID-19 Update: Current Status | Last Updated April 19, 2021

    We are currently in Phase 3 of our ramp up plan, which means that core research facilities may begin allowing non-ASRC users on a limited basis, with up to 50% building occupancy allowed.

    Please review our policies for increasing on-site research activity following NYS PAUSE and check back regularly for status updates.

Photonics Core Facility

The Photonics Core Facility offers several lasers, light sources, measurement instruments as well as optical and mechanical hardware to support photonics research. A laboratory support room is available with mechanical tools, allowing users to rapidly create experimental setups. The facility also maintains several photonics-related software packages for computational work.

Radio Frequency & Millimeter Wave Facility

The Radio Frequency and Millimeter-wave (RF/mm-wave) Facility includes fabrication and measurement units.

Electronics Fabrication Facility

The fabrication unit offers a complete in-house PCB prototyping (multilayer rigid and flex) through high-end laser and mechanical equipment. Furthermore, the fabrication unit provides a complete component placement and rework cycle including high-end fully- and semi-automatic rework stations enabling desoldering, soldering, and residual solder removal of SMDs and BGAs as small as 01005.

Measurement Facility

The measurement facility offers an anechoic test chamber capable of measuring electromagnetic radiation, high-end spherical nearfield measurement system, planar nearfield scanner (all in frequencies ranging from 1-110 GHz), and high-end PNAs and other required equipment for a fully in-house measurement cycle.

Additional Instruments:

  • Coherent Harmonic Generator for Mira Hp (Second And Third Harmonics)
  • Astrella Integrated Ti:s Amplifier
  • Neaspec Near-field Scanning Optical Microscope
  • Angular Resolved Transmission/Reflection System
  • Workstations and Numerical Software
