The Keck-II Center was established in late 2001 through the support ofÂ W. M. Keck Foundation. Keck-II also has received some support from Northwestern'sÂ Institute for Nanotechnology's NSF-sponsoredÂ Nanoscale Science & Engineering Center (NSEC)Â as well as from the State of IL and Northwestern. Keck-II facilitates research, collaboration, education and outreach in all science from soft biological matter to hard physical matter, specializing in surface analysis and nano-scale characterization.Â
Keck-II hosts Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (ToF-SIMS), X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), ConfocalÂ Raman System, High Resolution Stylus Profilometer, 3D Optical Microscope,Â Spectroscopic Ellipsometer, and Zetasizer.
Keck-II is open to all the faculty and students at Northwestern University as well as the researchers atÂ the nearby academic institutions and related industrial companies. The Keck-II Center operates and functions like its sister facilitiesÂ (SPIDÂ andÂ EPIC)-based on the core philosophy of open-access, hand-on training, collaboration and assistance from our able staff. Training is offered on a periodic basis, both as â€œcrash coursesâ€ or part of hands-on structured courses, as well as individual ad-hoc training as need arises.
Services are offerred outside of Northwestern University
