Center for Microanalysis of Materials

Center for Microanalysis of Materials, University of Illinois

The Center for Microanalysis of Materials (CMM), is a user-friendly Department of Energy/Basic Energy Sciences User Facility that provides the analytical capabilities essential to today's materials science. CMM emphasizes the microstructural and microchemical composition of materials, the chemistry and electronics of surfaces, the crystal structures, phase transitions and defect structures of materials and the relationship between structure and properties of solids. This site provides access to 30 major instruments in the areas of electron microscopy, scanning probes, surface microanalysis, X-ray diffraction, and various back-scattering spectroscopies.
