Phase I – This new 20,000sf Microscopy Characterization Laboratory & Research Facility was developed for The Ohio State University Department of Materials Science and Engineering. This unique facility houses a number of sophisticated and highly sensitive microscopes for the Center for Electron Microscope and Analysis (CEMAS) including several Titan, OSIRIS, Technai, Spirit, ESEM, Quanta, Helios, Magellan, Sirion, and Nova microscopes. When construction was completed, the center underwent specialized testing to ensure the device specifications were met. Tests revealed that the facility performs equal to or better than the highest standards achieved by any electron microscopy facility in the world.
Phase II – The facility was subsequently expanded by converting 7,000sf of existing warehouse space to accommodate 65 additional seats in an open office environment, 4 private offices, 2 collaborations areas, lounges, new conference rooms, breakout rooms, restrooms, and kitchenette.
