The Materials Characterization Facility (MCF) will be moving soon to its new location in 146-147 Stepan Chemistry Hall. Currently under construction, the new site is expected to be ready for move-in starting Monday, July 23. Instruments will be housed in both locations and will be moved in phases to ensure continuous availability. All instruments are expected to be in place by August 10. Users should expect little to no interruption in the MCF services and instrument use during this time. Current users will have automatic access to the new location. Dr. Ian Lightcap's office will be located in 146 Stepan Chemistry Hall.
An open house is currently being planned for late August for the Notre Dame community to tour the new facility and view some of the newest capabilities in the MCF.
Currently housed in 132 Nieuwland Science Hall with extended services in Stinson-Remick Hall, the MCF is a core research facility of the University of Notre Dame. It is part of the Center for Sustainable Energy (ND Energy) and provides world-class, state-of-the-art equipment and instrumentation with major capabilities in the following areas to support scientific advancements and new or improved sustainable energy technologies and systems. The MCF welcomes users from Notre Dame and other academia and industrial institutions.
