  • The goal of the MOCSI Facility (known informally as the Surface Facility) is to provide tools that can generate images of surface or near-surface characteristics, such as topography or electronic structure, at length scales from microns down to nanometers in environments ranging from ultra-high vacuum to fluids. The primary tools are specialized scanning probe microscopes (SPM's) that complement the capabilities of the standard SPM's found in the CCMR Materials Facility and in other Cornell centers. Additionally, vacuum surface processing equipment is available that can be configured according to the needs of users in order to prepare samples prior to characterization.
