The Electron Microscopy Facility (EMF) is one of several core research facilities at Brown University that provides access to specialized, high capital cost research tools. The EMF is designed to house a suite of electron microscopes, and each room has the power, cooling water supply, and HVAC necessary to run a modern microscope. This facility has also been mapped for stray fields and is well isolated from vibration.
The Electron Microscopy Facility is administered by IMNI and is operated as a cost center where the annual cost of supplies, service contracts, and personnel is recovered through an hourly charge to users for their instrument beam time. The EMF serves the research and teaching needs of faculty, researchers, and students in the physical and biological sciences at Brown University and is also available to outside academic and industry researchers.
