Facilities and Equipment
Computational facilities
In addition to the usual PCs students have access to Unix workstations in the Computational Fluid Physics Lab and the Texas Advanced Computing Center located on the J.J. Pickle Research Campus.  Laboratory computers are used for moderate-scale computations, testing ideas and program check-out, and to communicate with mainframes on campus, supercomputer facilities at government laboratories and other supercomputer centers.
Experimental facilities
Mid-infrared (3-8 µm) diode laser system, near-ir diode laser systems (0.8 µm), high repetiton rate (1-20 kHz) high power (>70W) diode pumped Nd:YAG laser system; monochromators, spectrometer with gated array detector, pulsed nitrogen laser and dye laser system, flat-flame burner, Wolfhard-Parker burner, capillary plasma generator, gated CCD-array, fiber optics, equipment for modulation spectroscopy, data-acquisition systems and dedicated computers. Students working on experiments also use the computing facilities to design experiments and analyze the results.
