Dr. Jonathan E. Spanier, Assistant Professor of Materials Science & Engineering (PI) received a $498,073 award from the NSF Division of Materials Research under the Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program entitled "MRI: Acquisition of Systems for the Integration of Raman Scattering, Luminescence and Scanning Electron Microscopies." Drs. Caroline L. Schauer (MSE), Yury Gogotsi (MSE), Zhorro Nikolov (CoE), and Elisabeth S. Papazoglou (BIOMED) are Co-PIs on this award. The award will support the acquisition of a metrology and nano-fabrication system that will integrate scanning electron imaging and focused-ion beam processing with local optical excitation, emission, and scattering spectroscopies within a single experimental platform.
