The Applied Chemical and Morphological Analysis Laboratory (ACMAL) is a University Core Facility which is part of the Materials Characterization & Fabrication Facilities. ACMAL houses an extensive array of electron microanalytical and X-ray instruments. ACMAL is managed by the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

Electron Optics Facility

The Electron Optics Facility includes three scanning electron microscopes (SEM, FE-SEM, ESEM), a high-resolution transmission electron microscope (TEM), a scanning transmission electron microscope (S-TEM), and a focused ion beam milling system (FIB).

X-Ray Facility

The X-ray Facility includes an energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer and five X-ray diffractometers.

Scanning Probe Microscopy Facility

The Scanning Probe Microscopy Facility contains an atomic force microscope (AFM).

Surface Analysis Facility

The Surface Analysis Facility utilizes a scanning Auger microprobe for Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) as well as an X-ray photoelectron spectrometer (XPS).

Fluorescence Optical Microscopy Facility

The Fluorescence Optical Microscopy Facility includes two optical microscopes and digital cameras.

Confocal Imaging Facility

The Confocal Laser-Scanning Fluorescent Imaging Core Facility and Cell Culture Lab includes an Olympus FluoViewTM FV1000 and a Biosafety Level 1/Biosafety Level 2 facility for cell work.
