Dear Nanoimaging Core Facility users:

We would like to inform you that the Facility remains operational and we will do our best to keep the normal operating hours. There are minor changes to sample submission process - we request that you follow the following guidelines for the Core Facility visitors. Our team is committed to keep providing services and support of the research community. Please contact facility management for questions and inquires. 

We appreciate your flexibility and understanding during this challenging time. Thank you!

UNMC's nanoimaging core facility has reopened, complete with a set of four instruments that make it among the most versatile facilities of its kind in the country.

For more information, or to request usage of the nanoimaging core, please contact Dr. Lyubchenko or Dr. Lushnikov at 402-559-2597 or 402-559-2596.

Since reopening July 2016, the facility -- based at UNMC -- has served researchers from Creighton University, the University of Cincinnati and Ball State University in Indiana. Part of the facility's draw is its array of technology -- four instruments that are capable of a wide variety of nanoimaging. "The nanoimaging core facility is primarily based on atomic force microscopy," with "The resolution of AFM about 1,000 times better than optical microscopy. So essentially, everybody who's working with nano-sized objects can use AFM." The four instruments in the facility are "built around atomic force microscopy, but they serve different functions." The instruments include:
