The Materials Science Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

The central MSC facility has provided materials researchers and industrial clients with electron microscopy imaging and analytical analysis, surface analysis and x-ray diffraction serves for over 25 years. MSC houses:

  • J.A. Woollam Variable Angle Spectroscopic Ellipsometer (VASE) and Infrared VASE (IR-VASE) systems (coming in February, 2016)
  • Cameca Local Electrode Atom Probe
  • Three scanning electron microscopes with Electron Dispersive X-ray spectrometers
  • Four transmission electron microscopes, with Cryo TEM tomography and an FEI Titan aberration corrected (S)TEM
  • A surface analysis instrument: a Thermo Fisher k-alpha X-Ray Photoelectron Spectrometer
  • Two atomic force microscopes including a Bruker Catalyst BioAFM
  • A dual-beam focused ion beam instrument
  • A confocal micro-Raman spectrometer (Labram Aramis JY)
  • A micro-FT-IR (Thermo Nicolet)
  • A Zeiss 510 Confocal Microscope
  • A small-angle x-ray diffractometer (SAXS)
  • Three additional Diffractometers
  • A ZYGO Optical Interferometer
  • A Horiba Nanolog spectrofluorometer
  • A UV/VIS Dual Beam Fluorometer
