SEM usage is $25/hour. There will be no charges for things such as using the lithography, use of the EDS, or any other equipment associated with the SEM. We also expect that users will provide their own "consumables" such as carbon tape, support plugs for sample mounting, gloves, etc. as the facility has limited resources of the above items. The users must log into the log book and the individual Excel sheet prior to using the SEM for billing purposes. The log book comments will help in assessing a possible malfunction which may occur during the user's time.
There will be no direct charge for time expended by the director while initiating a project, training new users or any sort of consultation. It is expected, however, that a significant effort by the director will be acknowledged by such things as authorship, inclusion in grants and public presentations, etc.
