Nanoscience Registry of Analytical Instruments Commonly Used in Earth and Environmental Science Research Through the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) Program

The National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) Program "provides researchers from academia, small and large companies, and government with access to university user facilities with leading-edge fabrication and characterization tools, instrumentation, and expertise within all disciplines of nanoscale science, engineeringand technology". In developing this Registry of Analytical Instruments, our goal is to a) optimize the use of resources already invested by NSF in instrumentation and infrastructure facilities, b) expand the human capital of researchers who are trained to apply this instrumentation to emerging research questions in the Earth and Environmental Sciences, and c) continue to build the NNCI network with users from diverse backgrounds and facilitate new collaborations.

This Registry of Analytical Instrument service is provided to help:

  • lab managers build their user base;
  • researchers, instructors and students to gain access to analytical equipment to support scholarly work; and,
  • build capacity by optimizing the use of existing analytical equipment to support excellence in science and the training of geoscientists.

Find an instrument in the registry.

Instructors, students, and researchers in search of an instrument can browse the list of entries to find specific instrumentation at a variety of facilities. Click on each record to see a complete description of the registered instruments and facilities. Search for an instrument.
