The Molecular Analysis Facility (MAF) is a fully staffed instrumentation facility for users from the UW, other universities, and industry. Capabilities include microscopy, spectroscopy, and surface science. Users can be trained to independently perform experiments, or an experienced staff member can perform experiments for you.
Located in the new Molecular Engineering & Science Building, the Molecular Analysis Facility consists of a large area of low-vibration instrumentation laboratory space and a wet lab for sample preparation. Since 2011, MAF has operated jointly with the College of Engineering’s Washington Nanofabrication Facility (WNF), which provides access to photo- and electron-beam-lithography, thin-film deposition, plasma and chemical etching, and characterization processes.
