Research Facilities at Mines

Unique Research Facilities at Mines

Alliance for the Development of Additive Processing Technologies (ADAPT)

The Data-Driven Advanced Manufacturing and Mechanics Laboratory and the Advanced Manufacturing Teaching Lab at Colorado School of Mines are home to ADAPT’s cutting-edge additive manufacturing, characterization and testing equipment. Our leading-edge research focuses on the complex process-structure-property relationships in additively manufacturing parts. The ADAPT team is dedicated to solving challenges in additive manufacturing using data-driven approaches and is taking advantage of the exciting new opportunities that arise in this area. ADAPT.mines.edu

WE2ST Water Technology Hub

Colorado School of Mines has established a water-energy center housed in a state-of-the-art facility centrally located in Denver, Colorado, with cutting-edge equipment. The facility supports research and education that advances technology related to current and future global water and wastewater challenges. These include but are not limited to water and wastewater treatment, urban water use and reuse, potable water reuse innovation at the water-energy-food nexus, and all areas of hydrological sciences.

Edgar Mine

The Colorado School of Mines Edgar Experimental Mine offers hands-on experience in the operation of a modern, full-scale mine. This underground and surface field research laboratory is an invaluable component of the education of mining, geological, petroleum, explosives and other engineering disciplines at Mines. It also offers a unique test site for underground, navigation, communication and autonomous operations. The mine, opened in the 1870s, originally produced high-grade silver, gold, lead and copper. Since the 1920s it has served as a teaching and research mine for Mines students and faculty and as an underground training site for military and federal agencies.

International Center for Multiscale Characterization (ICMC)

Materials performance or failure related to structure is best understood by elucidating the structure at different size scales and dimensions and quantifying a variety of features, including chemistry, defects and crystallography. The International Center for Multiscale Characterization (ICMC) focuses on solving device critical issues in materials science while advancing the state of the art in multiscale materials characterization. Using the combined instrumental capabilities at Mines and NREL, over 15 scientists work collaboratively in length scales of over 13 orders of magnitude to solve problems related to semiconductor processing, dielectric components, lightweight alloys, batteries, photovoltaics and fuel cells. ICMC.mines.edu

Nuclear Science and Engineering Center (NuSEC)

The faculty and students in the Nuclear Science and Engineering Center (NuSEC) conduct cutting-edge nuclear science and engineering research in dedicated nuclear laboratories both on campus and adjacent to the USGS TRIGA Reactor. The unique partnership between NuSEC and the reactor provides access to this valuable research tool to support Mines’  nuclear research. NuSEC laboratories support ongoing, exciting research in nuclear reactor design and operation, radiochemistry, nuclear materials, nuclear forensics, radiation imaging, nuclear physics and nuclear non-proliferation. NuSEC.mines.edu

Ultrafast Science Research Lab

The Ultrafast Science Research Lab is a state-of-the-art facility where the researchers both develop the ultra-optical technology and use it to advance microscopes for fields that include biology to advanced manufacturing. The facility features a broad array of laser systems, from high-repetition-rate oscillators to ultrafast amplifiers. The lab has a complete array of diagnostics and three home-built multi-photon microscope systems with complete scanning and imaging capability.  UltrafastOptics.mines.edu
