  • Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope Magellan 400 (FEI)
  • SEM/FIB Workstation: Helios Nano Lab Dual Beam 600 (FEI)
  • Transmission Electron Microscope: JEOL 2011T (JEOL)  
  • Transmission Electron Microscope: Titan (FEI)
  • as well as  several sample preparation devices

All of these devices are available to external customers! 


Data collected by our professional staff is charged at the assisted use rate. In some circumstances external customers can be trained to operate the devices and be charged at the unassisted rate.
