Summer 2018 Newsletter

Here we provide updates regarding ongoing nanoFAB activities which may be of interest to our user community.

New Equipment – nanoScribe
The nanoFAB has completed its first CFI purchase. The nanoScribe Professional GT will be installed and commissioned in January 2019. Please contact Aaron Hryciw if you are interested in this capability. Demo results are available for review.

Variable Pressure (VP) Microscopy
Now available, VP SEM for aqueous and insulating materials with freeze drying process, for morphology and composition analysis.

nanoFAB Services
Device fabrication and sample characterization services are provided. This is a cost-effective approach if analysis details or student training are not critical to your work. Look at some examples of our work.

Did you know?
The nanoFAB is available 24/7. All tools are available after hours, requests can be made through the LMACS.
