Vadym Mochalin and Colleagues Receive NSF MRI-R2 Award

Published on Friday February 5, 2010

Drexel University received a grant of $1.125 million for the project, "MRI-R2: Acquisition of an X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Surface (XPS) Analysis Instrumentation for Enabling Research and Education in Greater Philadelphia." The system will also have Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) capabilities that will enhance spatial resolution for elemental mapping down to less than 100 nm. The XPS system will be established as an openly accessible multi-user shared facility at Drexel University for use on-site by Drexel and regional institutions, and will have cyber-enabled accessibility for remote operations off-site. The project is under the direction of Kenneth K.S. Lau (CBE), Alexander Fridman (MEM), Giuseppe Palmese (CBE), and Vadym Mochalin (MSE).

Funding for this three-year project comes from the National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI-R2) Recovery and Reinvestment.
