The NanoTech User Facility (NTUF) houses leading-edge instruments for characterization
and fabrication at the micro- and nanoscales. Imaging tools include a field-emission
scanning transmission electron microscope (S/TEM) with tomography capability,
a field-emission scanning electron microscope (SEM) with energy-dispersed spectrometry,
a laser scanning confocal microscope, a Raman confocal microscope, a fluorescence
microscope, and two Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPMs). Fabrication tools include
a fully equipped soft lithography shop and electron beam lithography capability
in the SEM.
The NTUF is available to both academic and industrial users nationwide. Our
staff has designed and implemented training programs that allow users from different
disciplines to master the operation of our sophisticated tools after a few hour-long
training sessions. The facility is accessible to qualified users on a 24/7 basis.
In addition, our experienced team can perform projects for remote users and
provides a variety of micro- and nanofabrication services.
