Arizona State University's LeRoy Eyring Center was established in 1974 to provide researchers with open access to sophisticated techniques for materials characterization and high resolution electron microscopy. The Center supports materials analysis across a broad range of scientific disciplines, including physics, chemistry, biological sciences, earth and space sciences, and engineering.We have a four-decade legacy of training researchers on our electron microscopes and other analytical tools. Material scientists who trained at ASU are now running analytical, characterization and imaging laboratories in academia, government and industry around the world. In 1988 we began providing industrial users with access to our instruments using a service-center model. Over the past 27 years we have actively supported materials characterization and imaging requirements of corporate R&D in microelectronics, aerospace, medical electronics, energy, personal care, automotive, life sciences and other industries.In addition, we are committed to STEM-based educational outreach. Our k-12 outreach program, Science is Fun, reaches thousands of students each year with programs designed to make science fun, accessible and engaging for the next generation of scientists.
