What's at the nmRC?
In addition to acting as a learning and research hub for nano-, micro- and and materials science at the University of Nottingham, the nmRC hosts a number of state-of-the-art research facilities.
The centre is a specialist resource for electron microscopy variants, with vast Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and electron microprobe infrastructure and dedicated technical support.
In addition the centre is also home to X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), Confocal Raman Microscopy, Secondary Iron Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) and sample preparation suites. Please follow the links below for more information or additional technical information can be found on the ISAC website, or is internally available to University staff and students via the Kit Catalogue.
If you would like to discuss your proposed work with a member of staff we usually hold facility-specific 'drop in' sessions on Tuesdays at 10am (confocal Raman microscopy), and Wednesdays at 12pm (noon) (electron microscopy) in room A05, Cripps South Building.
