Welcome to the Imaging and Microscopy Facility (IMF) at UC Merced. The IMF suite hosts optical, scanning and transmission electron microscopes, in addition to equipment for preparing specimens for examination. We serve campus researchers in the physical sciences, biological sciences and engineering, and have a particular focus on nanotechnology. This facility offers students and researchers a range of materials characterization techniques, including advanced imaging, elemental analysis and structure determination.
The Image and Microscopy Facility is a laboratory that provides essential resources around the clock for faculty members, students and researchers in the area of light and electron microscopy. This laboratory provides an infrastructure that can serve campus researchers in the physical sciences, biological sciences and engineering, with a particular focus on nanotechnology. Our objective is to provide high-end, state-of-the-art instrumentation to campus members at a modest cost.
