The Yale Institute for Nanoscience and Quantum Engineering (YINQE) is a shared core facility for electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and electron-beam lithography. Graduate students, undergraduates, post-docs, and faculty have hands-on access to all instruments.
SEM, TEM, AFM, Instron, microtome, and e-beam training are now available! We have developed a combination of video and hands-on training for self-paced instrument training. You can learn at your own pace, with variable-speed videos and English subtitles. During training you will be at the instrument, learning to use it in person, while the instructor monitors your progress and answers your questions. Look at our training page for more information. If you leave for a while and forget some details, it’s very easy to review the videos.
