Facilities

The Center for Research on Interface Structure and Phenomena (CRISP) facilities include core shared instrumentation of the YINQE laboratory in the Malone Engineering Center, several more specialized instruments in Becton Center, and the CRISP NanoCharacterization Facility at SCSU in Jennings Hall. We are active member of the NSF’s Materials Research Facilities Network (MRFN)

Core shared facilities in the YINQE lab include two scanning electron microscopes, an electron-beam lithography system, two atomic force microscopes, focused ion-beam, and a transmission electron microscope. Follow this link for a complete description, and refer to the  YINQE contact page for requesting access and training.

CRISP facilities in the Becton Engineer Center include tools for x-ray diffraction, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, SQUID magnetometry, Cryogen-free Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS) AFM, combinatorial sputter deposition system, and MBEs. Yale has the highest concentration of oxide MBE tools in the world and makes contributions toward next-generation electronic devices
