UW MEM-C Logo Washington's Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC)


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), in the northeast corner of the ground floor of the NanoES building on central campus, as shown in the map below.

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, or through the links at the top of the page.

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.
