Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre logo

The Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre is one of the UK's leading centres for electron and ion microscopies. We provide imaging and analysis of materials at length-scales from the sub-millimetre to the atomic scale.

Our facilities are used both by the Materials and Condensed Matter Physics research group and external users for the study of a wide range of materials, solid objects and devices.  This includes collaborations with academic groups in the University of Glasgow, elsewhere in Scotland, across the UK, and internationally.  We also work extensively with industry in projects ranging from short contract research investigations to long-term partnerships.  If you would be interested to use our facilities, please contact us.  Full details of our instruments and their specifications are listed in Facilities.
