This page is designed
to be an introduction to equipment at TMI. It includes links
to other TMI web pages with details of the equipment.
Highlights of our service is listed here in these bullets:
- All equipment listed here may used by both internal and
- Instruments are useful for surfaces analysis,
spectroscopy, and microscopy. Uptimes > 90%.
- A team of ph-D educated facility managers
have a broad range of skills and are expert in
instrumentation. Managers are egar to answer any questions for
users or potential users about the equipment, sample
preparation, or technology.
- Usage fees are competitive with other services in the
country. Rates are listed in the links below for each
- We have some unique capabilities such as methods to
transfer air sensitive samples. News of these and others can
be found here.
part of TMI’s mission is to provide faculty and students at UT
Austin with the instrumentation and associated infrastructure
needed for state-of-the-art materials research. To fulfill
this mission, TMI manages a variety of core central
facilities, all of which are supported by Ph.D.-level facility
managers. This equipment is also available to users from
outside of the university. This page is here to provide a
quick link to the instruments available on the main campus.
Each entry contains a link to web pages for a particular
instrument. These pages will have details on location,
manager, and use charges.
Users from outside the university
will be charged via the normal external business invoice
This is a list of the major equipment for
our users. Each link has details of location, price, etc.
