Thermal Analysis Lab

The Thermal Analysis Lab provides access to advanced scientific instrumentation for measuring the thermal properties of materials in support of the educational, research, and public service missions of WKU for faculty and students requiring thermal analysis data. The TA Lab also actively conducts third-party thermal analyses of samples for local, regional, and national businesses and governmental agencies.
Located in a modern laboratory space within the Western Kentucky University's Center for Research and Development, the Thermal Analysis Laboratory contains a wide variety of scientific instruments, making it one of the most well-equipped academic thermal analysis laboratories in the United States. As a result, the TA Lab has developed into a nationally and internationally recognized facility.
