NUANCE: Nanoscale Characterization Experimental Center

NU Academy Students Tour NUANCE

The NUANCE Center had the pleasure of welcoming 22 students from the Northwestern University Academy for Chicago Public Schools to tour our facilities. Half stayed with EPIC’s Assistant Core Scientist Nick Gogola to look at samples on the Hitachi S-3400N-II SEM. EPIC’s Core Scientist Krysten Villalon took the other half of the group to see the variety of instruments in our AB space, including a variety of TEMS, FIBS, and SEMS. She detailed how the instruments can be used in various fields, including astrochemistry, forensics, and geology. 

Thanks so much to Kathleen Stair, McCormick School of Engineering, for organizing the visit!
