Our mission is to provide and continually update state-of-the-art and core analytical characterization instrumentation resources, with 24/7 open access, for all of NU and beyond. The word “resource” includes not only mere “instrumentation and access,” but also hands-on training, education, research collaboration and outreach. NUANCE aspires to be a pro-active and integral part of all scholarly activities related to characterization at and beyond NU.

This image is an example of silicon etched by potassium hydroxide (KOH) – small KOH crystals can be seen on the surface after drying. This image was captured with a scanning electron microscope (SEM), which is used to inspect etch quality and is a composite of images from multiple electron detectors.
