The University awarded a contract for JEM-Z200MF Monochromated-MARS NEOARM - microscope.
JEM-Z200MF: Monochromated-MARS NEOARM - microscope with new lens design, providing a magnetic-field-free sample region and, when combined with a nearly mono-energetic electron source, allows for atomic-resolution imaging as well as chemical analysis of these critical materials.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for performing sponsored research and other sponsored activities under grants and contracts funded by the sponsor or by sources other than State appropriations. (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b)(8)) This microscope purchase leverages the development or acquisition of multi-user research instruments that are critical to the advancement of science and engineering, specifically for research and research training at institutions of higher education and not-for-profit scientific/engineering research organizations. UIC students and scientists, as well as others throughout the Midwest and the United States, will all benefit from this microscope acquisition. Currently, the only other microscope similar to this in the world is at the University of Tokyo in Japan.
