Nanoscience Instrument Development Division

Division Leader: Gustavo Ceballos


  • Design, development and improvement of advanced precision instrumentation
  • Modification of commercial instrumentation to match particular experimental requirements
  • Scientific computing
  • Data acquisition
  • 3D-CAD design of precision devices
  • Vacuum technology (HV, UHV)
  • Cryogenics

The Nanoscience Instrument Development Division provides scientific and technical assistance in applied physics, precision instrumentation, microengineering, nanotechnology, scientific computing, and the 3D-design of precision devices. Its goal is to help address challenging instrumentation requirements in both basic and applied research. In recent years the division has also offered support for dissemination activities, specifically where the design and construction of prototypes and technology demonstrators are required.
