NBIC Probe Facility User Proposal
The Nano/Bio Probe Innovation Facility hosts a number of advanced and specialized
scanning probe instruments and probe stations. These facilities are made available on a
prioritized basis. NBIC funded projects have the highest priority. Projects related to the
NBIC mission have the second priority. The third priority includes other research and
‘fee for use’ external users. Time of the instrumentation is allocated based on these
priorities. All qualified users are expected to take advantage of evening and weekends as
well as weekday time slots.
In all cases the need of the specialized capabilities are taken into consideration. Note that
there are other facilities on campus with general SPM instrumentation.
