The University has received a major NSF instrumentation grant., MRI: Acquisition of Focused Ion Beam-Scanning Electron Microscope for the Multidisciplinary Research and Education at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. This effort involved a total of 20 users from 8 departments (PI Xiao Zhou, Chemical Engineering), including three CoPIs (Suzanne Fredericq, Sherry Krayesky-Self, Thomas Pesacreta), and three major users (William Schmidt, Erin Sigel, Karen Smith), from Biology.  The $999,597 award will allow the University to acquire a "focused ion beam-scanning electron microscope (FIB-SEM) for materials characterization and analysis, where FIB can cut samples into pieces as thin as one-hundredth the size of a human hair and SEM is capable of “seeing” materials feature at nanometer scale."
