The Center for Autonomous Solar Power has extensive facilities for thin film devices. Deposition equipment includes sputtering, chemical vapor deposition, pulsed laser deposition, vacuum deposition, and atomic layer deposition. In addition to the CASP facilities, the Nanofabrication Laboratory at Binghamton is also available:

The CASP laboratory also has equipment to characterize films and devices including a solar simulator, a photoluminescence instrument, a quantum efficiency instrument, Hall mobility, and 4-point probe instrumentation. For characterization of supercapacitors, CASP also has a Solartron Impedance Analyzer, a Solartron Electrochemical Interface, an Arbin Instruments' SCTS, Super Capacitor Test Station. a Micromeritics Gemini VII 2390t Automatic Physisorption Analyzer for BET, pore size analysis, multi-point BET surface area, adsorption/desorption isotherms, Langmuir surface area, mesopore volume, total pore volume, deBoer t-Plot, and a micropore volume & area.

The Advanced Diagnostics Laboratory is adjacent to the CASP. Its facilities include electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, - nondestructive testing, optical microscopy, and other advanced equipment:

The Integrated Electronics Engineering Center's Reliability and Failure Analysis Laboratory, is also adjacent to CASP. This lab provides instrumentation and expertise to solve critical issues in electronics packaging, including chambers, analytical and processing equipment.

In addition, the facilities at the Cornell Nanofabrication Facilities are nearby and offer extensive facilities to CASP faculty and students.
