The Electron Microscope Facility (CFEM) is one of eight Central Facilities operated by the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience (NCMN). These Central Facilities are university recharge centers that are open to all UNL researchers as well as external users with well defined user fees. CFEM is located in the Walter Scott Engineering Center (Room 12C) at the University of Nebraska (see Contact Info).
CFEM was created in 1991 by NCMN when a need for electron microscopy capabilities was emerged in order to improve further materials research in Nebraska. 1400 sq. feet of unused basement space in Walter Scott Engineering Center were remodeled; providing stringent temperature, acoustic, vibration and magnetic interference control. With the funding from NCMN the facility purchased three electron microscopes (EM) and assorted support equipment, establishing it as the premier EM facility between Arizona and Illinois.
