Shared Research Facilities provide students and researchers with the opportunity to use cutting-edge materials, science and engineering equipment. We are open to all researchers, including researchers at government laboratories and industries. Our staff provide training, guidance and assistance in operating the instruments and perform routine maintenance.

Our five primary facilities that operate on the Downtown and Evansdale campuses are designed to help researchers pursue interdisciplinary work on nano-enabled science, engineering, biology and medicine.
