Highlighted Shared Core of the Month
The Electron Microscopy Center (EMC) located at Rice University offers state-of-the-art instrumentation and expertise for the study of inorganic and organic nanomaterials and nanostructures at an atomic scale. We host a double-Cs corrected, mono-chromate FEI Titan Themis (S)TEM and a Helios 660 SEM/FIB, along with several special holders and detectors for in-situ experiments and novel 4D-STEM. EMC was founded in 2015 under the school of engineering at Rice University. A central mission of the EMC is advancing the electron microscopy research and education at Houston area. The EMC also collaborates with researchers from other academic institutions and industries and offers tours for visitors, classes (MSNE 580/582), and workshops. For more information, contact Yimo Han, Guanhui Gao, or Hua Guo.
Looking for a particular piece of equipment?
Did you know that the GCC has a Shared Equipment and Resource Committee (SERC) composed of the Directors/Leaders in equipment inventory and acquisition from each of the GCC institutions? If you are looking for a particular piece of equipment, please email Suzanne Tomlinson, and the committee members will work together to try to locate it and introduce you to the PI who owns/administers it.
