The Core Analytical Facility will provide state-of-the-art materials processing and characterization capabilities and professional service for faculty, staff, and studentsat Fayetteville State University and external agencies in the southeastern North Carolina region and beyond, to support cutting-edge research, transformative hands-on education, and technical development.
In order to utilize the available resources at FSU more efficiently, a Core Facility is proposed. The capabilities at the Core Facility include:
JEO JXA-8530F Microprobe, JEOL JSM-6510LV SEM, light microscopes, and sample preparation equipment, Atomic Force Microscope, X-Ray Diffractometer, and Mechanical Property Testers, Shimadzu Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer, Ultraviolet–visible Spectrophotometer, Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, High Performance Liquid Chromatography, Gas Chromatography, and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), and more.
The Core Facility will be a multi-user core facility at FSU for research, education, and for external users.
