Imaging and Characterization Facility

The Center for Research on Interface Structure and Phenomena (CRISP) facilities include core shared instrumentation of the YINQE laboratory in the Malone Engineering Center, This core facility includes SEM, TEM, FIB, AFM, and electron-beam lithography. Check out The YINQE web page for a complete description. CRISP has several more specialized instruments in Becton Center.

CRISP facilities in the Becton Engineering Center include tools for x-ray diffraction, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and SQUID magnetometry.

The more specialized instruments are used to grow thin films using oxide molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). These tools can grow materials with a precision of an atomic layer. Yale has the highest concentration of oxide MBE tools in the world and makes contributions toward next-generation electronic devices.
