The Keck Center for Surface and Interface Imaging is an interdisciplinary research facility. The Center's technical expertise and research equipment is designed to foster student training and research collaborations throughout the College of Science, complementing existing research strengths in the areas of nano-science and nanotechnology. The Center is housed on the first floor of the Chemical Sciences Building and is supervised by dedicated technical staff whose responsibilities include student training, instrument maintenance as well as experimental measurements. The Center is administered by the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and is open to all University of Arizona research groups.  Imaging Instrumentation available for use includes four scanning probe microscopes, a confocal microscope, a Total Internal Reflection (TIRF) microscope, a spinning-disk confocal microscope, and a scanning electron microscope with EDS and e-beam lithography capabilities.

Non-Imaging Instrumentation located in the Keck Center:  a custom built Potential Modulation Attenuated Total Reflectance spectrometer (PMATR) instrument for absorbance spectroscopy, spectroelectrochemical measurments, and potential modulated absorbance measurements on thin molecular films (less than a monolayer).  Inquire for details.
