Non-charged equipment

The Imaging & Optics Facility provides a number of non-charged devices for sample preparation or checking, as well as experimental accessories. These resources do not require a system training, but need to be booked in PPMS nevertheless. An introduction to newcomers is required before any instrumentation can be used.
