NUANCE Center, Northwestern University

The Northwestern University Atomic and Nanoscale Characterization Experimental Center (NUANCE) was established during 2001-02 to integrate complementary analytical instruments and characterization capabilities at Northwestern University. NUANCE serves Northwestern and the broader scientific and engineering community, and provides invaluable resources to the private sector and public institutions in and around the Midwest. An operationally and fiscally efficient solution to the increasing need for advanced analytical and characterization instrumentation, NUANCE leverages staff technical expertise to assist and collaborate with researchers in the physical sciences, engineering, and interdisciplinary fields. NUANCE integrates four complementary instrumentation facilities: EPIC, Keck-II, NUFAB, and SPID under a unified management umbrella. These four facilities are a unique, centralized and comprehensive resource for the Northwestern community and beyond. NUANCE retains the individual identity of the four facilities, but their integration with unified operations promotes synergy among instruments, staff, training, service, technical expertise and new cross-disciplinary initiatives. Our mission is to provide and continually update state-of-the-art and core analytical characterization instrumentation resources, with 24/7 open access, for the Northwestern community and beyond. The word “resource” includes not only mere “instrumentation and access,” but also hands-on training, education, research collaboration and outreach. NUANCE aspires to be a pro-active and integral part of all scholarly activities related to characterization at and beyond Northwestern.
