User Information

The KMICF welcomes new users.

To access the KMICF, begin by contacting one of the technical staff.

For access to the electron microprobe, contact lab manager Ken Domanik. For FIB, TEM, or SEM, users must create a user account (iLab instructions PDF). Instrument training can be scheduled after the user account has been established.

Instrument usage can be self-directed after appropriate training and approval; assistance can be provided if needed. Costs are based on the rate schedule, which is determined by annual rate studies.

The KMICF is open to all users during normal business hours. Only those users who have been trained, verified, and/or approved by instrument scientists for after-hours access, will be allowed to use instrumentation outside of normal business hours.
