The Colorado Shared Instrumentation in Nanofabrication and Characterization (COSINC) facility and the Materials Instrumentation and Multimodal Imaging Core (MIMIC) facility will host a joint virtual webinar from noon to 2 p.m. on Nov. 18 via Zoom.

Both facilities are housed within the College of Engineering and Applied Science and are open for interdisciplinary use and study by the public, faculty, students, and staff. Together these facilities enable research into energy materials, semiconductors, biomaterials, device inspection, optics, photonics, geological materials, material sciences, forensics, bio-medical, and quantum science. This free virtual session will include hands-on demonstrations and background information on the facilities with the first hour dedicated to x-ray microscopy and the second to electron microscopy.

COSINC is a multidisciplinary core research facility and service center that provides access to state-of-the-art equipment in the areas of micro and nanofabrication, ISO 5 cleanroom, nanomaterials characterization and metrology. It also offers expertise and advanced hands-on training in the same areas. MIMIC also contains state-of-the-art equipment to assess the structural, mechanical and chemical properties of materials down to the submicron scale. Both facilities are open, fee-for-service facility accessible to all researchers including academic, governmental, industrial and individuals.
