The Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation fosters inter-disciplinary, multi-investigator research and education. A state-of-the-art equipment infrastructure is essential to enable research topics of intellectual and technological importance and allow researchers the ability to engage in research problems of broad scope and complexity that can not be addressed by a single investigator, rather requiring the advantage of a larger infrastructure and interdisciplinary expertise provided by a campus-based research center. The Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation offers a listing of Shared Research Resources and IMNI Core Research Facilities.
The Shared Resources are IMNI Faculty Member's individual laboratories, which may be available on a case by case basis, as determined by the individual Faculty Member.
The IMNI Core Research Facilities are research laboratories that are essential to our mission to foster interdisciplinary research. They provide access to advanced instrumentation and various services as well as involvement in developing new technology or new applications of existing techniques. The IMNI Core Research Facilities are administered by IMNI and are available to researchers from any and all university departments, particularly Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Medicine, as well as outside users from local industry and academic institutions on a usage fee basis to recover operating costs. IMNI administers the following Core Research Facilities:
- Electron Microscope Facility
- Microelectronics Facility
- NanoTools Facility
- Joint Engineering/Physics Instrument Shop (JEPIS)
