The Applied Chemical and Morphological Analysis Laboratory (ACMAL), managed by the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, is a University Shared Facility. Lab research activities include characterizing materials and studying the chemistry of materials at the atomic level.
ACMAL houses an extensive array of electron microanalytical and x-ray instruments. Five discrete facilities featuring state-of-the-art equipment comprise the ACMAL.
Electron Optics Facility (EOF)
Includes two scanning electron microscopes (SEM), an atomic resolution scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM), and a focused ion beam milling system (FIB).
Offers an energy-dispersive x-ray fluorescence spectrometer and five x-ray diffractometers.
Scanning Probe Microscopy Facility
Offers Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) and an atomic force microscope (AFM).
Surface Analysis Facility
Offers a scanning Auger microprobe for Auger electron spectroscopy (AES).
