MEM-C maintains a growing suite of facilities providing students, faculty, and industry access to state-of-the-art equipment. Most are located in the MEM-C Shared Facilities (MSF), on the ground floor of the NanoES building on central campus. A map can be found on the Access and Rates page.
Capabilities include microscopy, spectroscopy, materials synthesis, thin film deposition, and 2D device fabrication. Users can be trained to operate the equipment themselves, or they can have an experienced superuser do it for them.
Information about the MEM·C’s instrumentation and links are provided below.
UW MEM·C is part of the Materials Research Facilities Network (MRFN). The primary goal of the program is to maximize the use of advanced characterization facilities within the greater scientific community. Please visit mrfn.org for comprehensive information.
