The AMCaT labs are located in Kemper Hall with a major emphasis on Analytical Electron Microscopy (micro analysis) in material and sciences. AMCaT is a 24/7 multi user recharge facility requiring all new users to register. The vision and goal of AMCaT is to embrace and support a multi disciplinary user base of students (undergraduate, graduate), post doc and faculty researchers at UC Davis. The facility also offers our users a variety of sample preparation equipment, a light microscopy lab with image analysis, an x-ray lab, and a materials testing lab. AMCaT also supports numerous lab classes in Engineering.
AMCaT will do service work for PIs, students and off site commercial customers. In addition to running samples on the instruments our staff can provide a range of additional services:
