The EMC is a user facility set up to provide electron microscopy services to the university research and teaching communities. The EMC has three SEM and two TEM as well as sample preparation equipment for use by the community. Corporate use is allowed at a rate commensurate with rates for similar equipment in the corporate world.

The center provides training and help with analysis for users of the facility. Users are encouraged to learn to operate the equipment, but operation and analysis will be provided on request.

All equipment is charged on a beam time basis for the microscopes and on a per sample or actual time basis for the sample prep equipment.


The EMC is located in Roberts Hall, at the University of Washington. Click here for a floor plan of the facility.
