X-Ray Structural Characterization

X-RAY STRUCTURAL CHARACTERIZATION

The NCMN X-Ray Characterization Facility is dedicated to materials identification and characterization through nondestructive, X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), high resolution diffraction for analysis of thin films, complete structure determination of single crystals (Crystallography).

Materials Preparation

MATERIALS PREPARATION

Two sputtering systems have been established to fabricate a variety of thin films, especially the nano-structured films including overlayers, multilayers, granular solids, clusters, etc. Two tube furnaces are available for sample (target) annealing, doping, and sintering.

Micro Aligner Nanofabrication

NANOFABRICATION

The NCMN facility contains a large variety of equipment to prepare, fabricate, analysis, and characterize a wide range of nanostructure materials.

Scanning Probe Microscopy

SCANNING PROBE MICROSCOPY (SPM)

The NCMN Scanning Probe Microscopy Facility employs a variety of very precise, non-destructive probing techniques (AFM, MFM, EFM, LFM, STM, and PFM) for imaging and measuring surface properties of materials from the micron level down to the atomic scale.

Metallurgical & Mechanical Charac.

METALLURGICAL & MECHANICAL Characterization

This facility contains a large variety of equipment to characterize the mech-anical and physical properties of a wide range of materials. The facility focuses on using the many materials characterization aspects to perform failure analyses on components.

FEI Tecnai Osiris

ELECTRON MICROSCOPY

The scope of the Electron this facility is materials characterization of the topography, morphology, elemental composition, crystalline microstructure, crystal defects, and atomic arrangements of materials, largely on a scale from 10 micrometers down to the
near-atomic level.


 


CryogenicsCRYOGENICS

Cryogenics provides the means for obtaining Liquid Nitrogen and Liquid Helium for low temperature research, cold traps, etc.
