Our Industrial Associates Program (IAP) encourages greater interaction between industrial and academic scientists by providing industry with open access to all of the Center's facilities at rates commensurate with similar services offered by private sector analytical labs. We offer access to advanced instrumentation, technical expertise, training, educational workshops and research collaboration opportunities.

Whether your interests are in new product development or defect analysis, understanding nanostructures and their relationship to performance are critical.

Companies making extensive use of Center facilities are encouraged to take advantage of our memberships, which facilitate equipment access, reduce administrative overhead and often result in cost savings. Members who are trained on our instruments can obtain direct access to our characterization laboratories for additional cost savings and greater operating flexibility.
