WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK AND ACKNOWLEDGE FUNDING FROM THE NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION (GRANT NUMBER CHE-1920255) FOR THE ACQUISITION OF AN ANALYTICAL ATOMIC FORCE MICROSCOPE (AFM).

 WHAT IS THE IMAGE CENTER?

The centrally located IMAGE facility provides training, technical service, and research in scanning electron, transmission electron, atomic-force, and light microscopy. Advanced capabilities include x-ray analysis, image analysis, and viewing of specimens under near-atmospheric conditions.
