Welcome to ADL
The Analytical and Diagnostics Laboratory (ADL) is a centralized, interdisciplinary, fully staffed research facility at Binghamton University that promotes high tech commercialization of microelectronic technologies by providing instrument and technical support for materials diagnostics, analysis, characterization, and device processing in areas such as electronics systems integration and packaging, materials research, and flexible electronics. The lab also supports life sciences research applications in medical areas, security systems for detection of pathogens, and additional industrial and consumer applications, both directly as well as through related emerging technologies. ADL facilities are used by members of the Binghamton University research community, other academic institutions and profit and nonprofit organizations.
Analytical and Diagnostics Laboratory is a component of The Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging Center (S3IP), a New York state Center of Excellence.
The ADL facilities are staffed by Ph.D. level research scientists and engineers who provide equipment training, consultative assistance, operator services and research collaboration to our industry and academic partners. The lab includes state-of-the-art high-tech instrumentation for electron microscopy. optical microscopy, thermal analysis, non-destructive analysis, spectroscopy, x-ray analysis, mechanical and electrical testing, surface and interface analysis, thin film fabrication and analysis, mesoscale machining systems and extensive sample preparation tools and a microfabrication facility. Equipment use is available to the academic and industry community, and usage fees are established in accordance with Federal OMB Circulars and approved by the Binghamton University Chargeback Committee.
