Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre

Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre (KNC)

KNC’s instruments provide powerful techniques for investigating materials from the sub-millimetre right down to the atomic scale. These instruments are world-leading in many of their capabilities and our staff have developed many unique imaging modalities. Microscopes include TEMs, FIB-SEM, SEMs, AFMs, a Xenon plasma focused ion beam microscope and a neocera pulsed laser deposition system. Explore some of the systems and resources they offer users below, and be sure to check out their website for full details and the most up-to-date information.
