Appalachian State University

Engineering Physics with emphasis in the area of Systems Automation/Instrumentation and/or Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials; The department includes the Biophysics and Optical Sciences Facility (BiyOSeF) and the Ion Trap Laboratory. Using automated optical tweezers, Raman spectroscopy, fluorescence anisotropy, and a Raman-tweezers system, faculty at Appstate explore the properties of microorganisms, proteins, and other biological molecules. Faculty also conducts research on the radiative properties and reaction rates of low-charge-state ions produced and stored in a UHV environment. The department includes state of the art microscopy facilities, as well as nanofabrication capabilities ranging from UHV thin-film deposition to e-beam lithography. Faculty use scanning probe microscopy techniques to explore the properties of organic semiconductor thin films or the growth of metallic nanoparticles.
