This site provides equipment status updates for the Electron Optics Facility within ACMAL, the Applied Chemical and Morphological Analysis Laboratory, located on the campus of Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Michigan. ACMAL is operated by the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.
ACMAL is directed by Mr. Owen P. Mills.
The main ACMAL website has general information about the facilities, including additional information for each instrument supported here. Other facilities besides electron optics are part of ACMAL, but their statuses are not posted here.
Free online eTraining Modules are available for facility users and anyone interested in electron microscopy. The modules are developed and maintained by the ACMAL group.
Information about courses, practical exams and general policy can be found in Electron Optics Facility Procedures and Policies.
All facilities listed in this status site are located in the Minerals and Materials Engineering Building, mainly on the 6th floor.
All recognized facility users are added to an email notification list. Notifications are reposted in this site. Only the status admin may leave comments in posts.
Sometimes job notifications in the field of electron microscopy are emailed to the list. Those are archived in Job Postings – Students and Alumni in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.
Michigan Technological University is an equal opportunity educational institution/equal opportunity employer.
