Will the TEM or XPS help users get the results they expect?

Anyone is free to contact and consult with us. The first session is most often free of charge and is dedicated to explore the capabilities of a specific instrument for the analysis of your samples. We’ll also discuss and determine how the facility can benefit your research.

The facility will assist and make the equipment available for that purpose for a limited number of hours, provided the proposal is made available ot us and includes a monetary amount dedicated to cover the facility usage. The details and other aspects of this support are currently being discussed.
