Shared experimental facilities provide essential instrumentation for materials preparation and characterization. The MRSEC operates equipment to support our Center research, including:

These instruments are operated under faculty supervision with training by postdoctoral fellow and graduate student "super-users," and they are also available to researchers from academe and industry. If you are interested in finding out more about the equipment in these facilities, please contact us.

The Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS) at Harvard offers major instrumentation, professional guidance, and technical support to researchers in the areas of:

These facilities are open to all researchers as part of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) with information about becoming a CNS/NNIN user is available.

If your research needs are outside the equipment available at Harvard, please also check instrumentation available through the Materials Research Facilities Network (MRFN).
