The Materials Characterization Facility At The Texas Center For Superconductivity

TcSUH Materials Characterization Facility

The Materials Characterization Laboratory at the Texas Center for Superconductivity at the University of Houston (TCSUH) provides a wide array of materials characterization techniques, including electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction, supported by necessary sample preparation techniques. In addition, training is offered in sample preparation as well as in characterization techniques. Workshops can also be arranged to illustrate use and utility of the equipment.
