Otto H. York Center for Environmental Engineering and Science

Equipment/facility: Facility

    Equipments Details


    The Otto H. York Center for Environmental Engineering and Science (YCEES) at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) offers core laboratory facilities as a resource for the university and for contract research. It has been the home of many interdisciplinary research programs and initiatives. The York Center was the first building in the nation especially constructed for cooperative public and private research in hazardous waste management. Today it has diversified into many other areas with research projects in nanotechnology, drug delivery, particle engineering, microfluidics, membrane science, environmental science and engineering, and biomedical engineering.

    Available are extensive characterization facilities for a variety of measurements that include mass spectroscopy (GC-MS, ICP-MS and LC-MS), optical spectroscopy (IR, NMR, UV, Fluorescence), microscopy (SEM, TEM, AFM) and light scattering based particle characterization, Fluorescence and 2-photon microscopes.
