The MMCL supports research and innovation at the
University of Pittsburgh and beyond by providing access to state-of-the-art
experimental tools, effective techniques, and expertise of its personnel for
complete materials micro-characterization.
MMCL research encompasses visualization of the surface and internal structure of materials and associated changes across microscopic to near-atomic length scales. Characterizations can also include locally resolved measurements of materials composition,
structure, micro- to nano-mechanical properties, and specialized specimen preparation needs. MMCL is a fee based-laboratory. Please take a moment to review the fee schedule and details related to billing procedures.
