Industry Collaboration & Support

The Institute for Nanoscience and Engineering has a group of facilities that is unique among universities.

We encourage industry collaboration on new and existing research and development needs. Our user facilites are open to users upon completion of training on a wide range of capabilities. The techniques available include cutting edge x-ray diffraction, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, confocal microscopy and atomic force microscopy (AFM), including an exclusive high speed AFM capable of video rate imaging.

The structure, chemistry and surface properties of crystalline and biological materials can be characterized by these tools in multiple ways both at the macro and nano scale, providing a rich dataset of information that can be utilized to solve problems in a range of scientific arenas.  Additionally we have facility service centers that employ our experts in materials growth, electrical and optical characterization.

Facilities open for external/internal users:
