User Research Facilities
The Penn State User Research Facilities are a collection of core research facilities from Materials Research Institute and Institutes of Energy and the Environment/Energy and Environmental Sustainability Laboratories (IEE/EESL). These core facilities are home to a number of state-of-the-art research instrumentation and labs and can be accessed by the research community at Penn State and worldwide. The facilities can perform research for you or you can become personally trained, in some cases, to perform your own research.
The Research Instrumentation Management System (RIMS) is the web-based platform used to manage these core facilities. Currently RIMS is managing on the order of 250 instruments in various lab locations.
