The IEN/IMat Materials Characterization Facility (MCF) is the core facility for materials analysis at Georgia Tech.  Its laboratories include the recently-opened microanalysis suite in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building, one of the most advanced facilities of its kind in the nation.  Read More

Available to academic, industry, and government users, the MCF at Georgia Tech is a merger of several labs on campus under one umbrella with a uniform set of fees and policies.  The MCF offers a wide variety of microscopy and characterization tools  as well as skilled research staff to support your research needs.

MCF offers shared-user access to the latest in imaging and analysis technology, which can be accessed by users 24 hours a day.  It also provides a full contingent of services for researchers including,

  • Equipment training
  • Remote sample prep and measurement
  • Imaging and analysis consultations

For those in need of more hands-on involvement with their materials characterization and failure analysis, the MCF includes the Georgia Tech Materials Analysis Center (GT MAC). Read More

As a complement to the shared-user facility in the MCF, GT MAC provides expert-driven analysis in its own state-of-the-art materials testing facility through dedicated researchers with decades of combined experience solving problems for industry, state, and federal customers.  When “hard to solve” challenges compel analysis beyond routine testing, GT MAC can leverage the extensive experience of its professional associations as well as the MCF shared-user facility to take an in depth look at difficult or unusual characterization issues.

GT MAC has partnered with customers at every level and in every field, in both the private and public sectors. The Center has had over 600 contracts with industry customers over the past 25 years, ranging from small Georgia-based startups to national and international corporations.
