The MRL-CMM Laser and Spectroscopy Facility (LSF) is part of the MRL Central Research Facilities, and as such, is a user-oriented and user-friendly facility that provides the modern photon-based analytical capabilities essential to today's materials science. The LSF emphasizes the study of optical properties of materials and interfaces, and its relation to microstructural and microchemical composition, phase transitions, crystalline, electronic and defect structure of materials, surfaces and interfaces. The LSF is a collaborative research center open to researchers from universities, government laboratories, and industry, national and international. Together with the other MRL Central Research Facilities it forms a unique resource representing an exceptional opportunity to answer your materials characterization questions. The access to over 40 major instruments of the MRL Facilities enables researchers to find the best combination of analytical techniques for their specific needs. Once trained by our staff experts, researchers are able to conduct their own measurements with 24-hour access to the instruments. The facility staff also provide guidance, consultation, and collaboration whenever needed. The breadth of the instrumentation, the experience of their staff, and their accessibility, make the MRL Central Research Facilities an invaluable resource for material scientists and researchers around the globe.
