Facilities and Fees
A summary of fees and facilities at each node are shown below. All nodes differentiate between internal and external users, some also between external academic and non-academic users. The system for financing infrastructures varies significantly between the facilities. Therefore, internal instrument fees can vary from being very low to close to the same as for external users. The fees for external academic users also vary between the nodes. It is therefore recommended to contact the nodes to get detailed information about the fees at that node.
EM-lab – KTH
Special competences: Characterization of nanoparticulate matters including films and coatings, semiconductor circuits, cellulosic materials as well as metals and minerals are some of the main areas.
Contact person: Dr Fei Ye, firstname.lastname@example.org
For sample preparation and other instruments, visit myfab:s homepage.
UEM – Materials Physics, Kista Electrum
Special competence: Ultrafast Electron Microscopy. The microscope is a customised JEOL 2100 with a thermionic emitter, additional electron optics, and a Gatan Quantum SE imaging energy filter. The drive laser is an Amplitude Systems Tangerine 35 W (300 fs). The demonstrated time resolution of the UEM is < 800 fs.

Fibre and polymer technology (FPT)
Special competences: TEM, SEM and EDS analysis of fibre and polymer materials. In-situ SEM mechanical testing. Sample preparation with the Cryosectioning Ultramicrotome.
External academic users pay 90% of instrument fees.
Contact person: Dr Anastasia Riazanova firstname.lastname@example.org

EMC – Stockholm University
Special competences: Electron crystallography, EELS and EDS of nanoparticles.
There are, in general, two core sessions (4 hours each) in a working day: morning session (09:00-13:00) and afternoon session (13:00-17:00). For external academic users of SEM/TEM there is a bench fee of 25 000 SEK/year.
