Lab Methods: Standard Tools and Techniques

The following presentations are organized to explain the fundamental methods and equipment in our laboratories–what they can be used to measure, how you can use these tools, the governing principles of how they work, their limitations, and the physics/math/post-processing required to go from machine output to useful data.
