Center For Engineering Innovations And Design (CEID)
Center For Genomics And Proteomics
The Center for Genomics and Proteomics is a focal point for the research and teaching of genomics, small molecule screening, proteomics, ribonomics and bioinformatics, including the areas of chemical genomics, comparative genomics, structural genomics, technology development and bioengineering.
Center For Microelectronic Materials And Structures
The Center includes a nanotechnology laboratory that contains an Electron-beam lithography exposure tool for writing images with sub-100 nm features, both a transmission and scanning electron microscope, a dual-beam focused ion beam system, an atomic force microscope, a cryo-microtome, a denton chromium sputtering tool, a transmission electron microscope thinning mill, and an alphastep 200 profilometer.
Center For Microelectronic Materials And Structures Clean Room
The Center houses a 2600 sq-ft class 100 clean room that contains equipment for solid state device fabrication, including facilities for photolithography, wet chemical etching, oxidation, diffusion, thermal evaporation, sputtering, reactive ion etching, chemical vapor deposition, and other thin film processes.
Chemical and Biophysical Instrumentation Center
The Yale Chemical Instrumentation Center is a collection of instruments for molecular structure determination supervised by professional staff. The collection includes X-ray, NMR, mass spectroscopy, isothermal titration calorimetry, and optical spectroscopy facilities that are available on a walk-up and reservation basis.
High Performance Computing Facilities
The Yale High Performance Computing (HPC), housed within the Yale Center for Research Computing, includes several large parallel computing clusters, courses and other resources for the development and optimization of parallel computer codes, providing administrative support for all PEB faculty.
Mcdb Microscopy Facilities
MCDB maintains and manages imaging facilities for light and electron microscopy to support research, training and teaching by faculty, staff and students from MCDB and other departments, primarily from Science Hill and the School of Engineering. Two full time MCDB staff members manage these facilities, train new users, and help with experiments. The facility currently houses a DIC/epifluorescence microscope, four laser scanning confocal microscopes, and one spinning disk confocal microscope. In addition, there are three older electron microscopes used for teaching and research by most Science Hill/Engineering departments and one modern transmission electron microscope available only to MCDB for research.
West Campus Cleanroom
The West Campus Cleanroom is a 1200 square-foot space containing wet and dry clear laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment for microfabrication. A research support specialist runs the facility and is available for consultations.
