Center for Materials under eXtreme Environment (CMUXE)

Center for Materials under extreme environments (CMUXE) is a research unit at Purdue University aimed at promoting nuclear, material science, plasma research, and education. Members of CMUXE perform basic and applied research in wide variety of interdisciplinary fields. The major thrust area is the interactions of high-intensity, modulated energy beams: electromagnetic radiation, plasma, electrons, ions and other particle sources (i.e. clusters, molecules) with matter. The CMUXE combines both advanced integrated computational tools, i.e., HEIGHTS simulation package and state-of-the art experimental devices.

Dynamic Mechanics Laboratory

We develop innovative dynamic experimental techniques to determine the mechanical response of challenging materials and structures under impact loading conditions. We have extensive experiences in characterizing materials from as soft as gel rubbers to as hard as armor ceramics, from as small as a single spider silk to as large as instrumented concrete targets. A recent book (Split Hopkinson (Kolsky) Bar by Springer) documents some of our previous work.

ARMS B130 /Bowen Weinong Chen
Laboratory for Renewable Resources Engineering (LORRE)

Carries out research, training, and discovery in transforming renewable resources into biofuels and bioproducts. Couples fundamental research in renewable resources to the art and science of scale-up for purposes of design, prototyping, and operation of industrial systems that are economic, environmentally friendly, and sustainable. Provides research services in microbiology, fermentation, liquid chromatography and biomass analysis.

MSE Microscopy Facility

The MSE Microscopy Facility contains 2 Transmission Electron Microscopes and 3 Scanning Electron Microscopes for use in research and analysis. The SEMs have Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS) capability, and one SEM also has Electron Backscatter Diffraction Analysis (EBSD). The facility contains a sample preparation laboratory with basic tools and supplies for EM sample preparation. In addition there are 2 Atomic Force Microscopes, one small sample stage and one large sample stage that has a wide variety of attachments for a variety of experiments. The large stage AFM also has Piezoresponse Force Microscopy (PFM) and Scanning Thermal Microscopy (SThM) capability.
