Illinois Institute of Technology

The Materials Research Collaborative Access Team (MRCAT) offers a wide array of synchrotron radiation experiment capabilities, including X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray absorption (XAS), X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and 5µm spot size fluorescence microscopy. User Guide

North Carolina State University

The PULSTAR reactor facility offers a selection of dedicated irradiation beam port facilities, neutron powder diffraction, neutron imaging, intense positron source and ultra-cold neutron source. An intense positron source has been developed to supply a high-rate positron beam to two different positron/positronium annihilation lifetime spectrometers. User Guide


University of Michigan 

The 1.7 MV Tandetron accelerator in the Michigan Ion Beam Laboratory offers controlled temperature proton irradiation capabilities with energies up to 3.4 MeV as well as heavy ion irradiation. Crack growth rate testing in controlled temperature, pressure, and chemistry are also offered at the University of Michigan. User Guide

University of Wisconsin 

The UW Tandem Accelerator Ion Beam is a 1.7 MV terminal voltage tandem ion accelerator (Model 5SDH-4, National Electrostatics Corporation Pelletron accelerator) featuring dual ion sources for producing negative ions with a sputtering source or using a radio frequency (RF) plasma source. This accelerator offers controlled temperature proton irradiation capability with energies up to 3.4 MeV. The analysis beamline is capable of elastic recoil detection and nuclear reaction analysis. Transmission electron microscopy and scanning electron microscopy are also offered at the University of Wisconsin. User Guide
