The University Instrumentation Center is a core University wide facility dedicated to the advancement of the research and academic missions of UNH and is open and available to all faculty, staff, and students.
UNH has recently received a NSF Major Research Instrumentation award for a new Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscope (FIB-SEM). The unit will be housed at the University Instrumentation Center (UIC) in the basement of Parsons Hall. The grant is a result of a collaborative proposal developed by investigators from Mechanical Engineering, Earth Sciences, Materials Science, and the UIC. Expect to hear more about this in February 2014.
Zeiss/LEO 922 Omega Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM)
