Laboratory Facilities
Three-major optical and electronic characterization facilities and one device modeling computational facilities was developed with support from DoD, NSF, DOE, UNT Internal grants and collaborative effort with Departments of Chemistry and Engineering Technology.

1. Ultrafast Optics Laboratory: Laser Sources:
- A tunable femtosecond laser system -(300 nm - 16 mm) That includes: Diode pumped Nd:YLF laser as a pump source, a 1 kHz 2.5 mJ Femtosecond Regenerative Amplifier, a Fiber laser (@ 800 nm) as the seed source, a Femtosecond optical parametric amplifier (300 nm - 16 mm).
- Tunable femtosecond OPO (210 nm 2670 nm)
- UV-Visible Argon Laser, CW He-Cd Laser 25mW, He-Ne Lasers (10 mW), GaN Laser Diodes (5 mW)
