In order to maintain, manage, and operate our extensive resources more efficiently, the NanoTech Institute has placed a large portion of its “high use” equipment into a general user facility available to users both inside and outside UTD. Users at UTD and collaborating universities will be charged an educational rate, while others will be charged a commercial rate.

For more information, see the documents below.
