Development, testing, and characterization of advanced materials require specialized tools, and JIAM’s laboratories are equipped with an extensive collection of leading-edge technologies. Seven UT Core Facility laboratories are housed at JIAM and can be accessed both by UT researchers and external clients.

To access a Core Facility at JIAM, please contact the Core Facility Lab Manager:

Electron Microscopy Center – John Dunlap
X-Ray Diffraction – Michael Koehler
Advanced Photoelectronic Spectrometer (APS) – Paolo Vilmercati
Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) – Paolo Vilmercati
Electromagnetic Properties Lab (EMP) – Han Zhang
Micro-Processing Research Facility (MPRF) – Eric Lukosi
Chemistry Polymer Characterization Lab (PCL) – Katrina Pangilinan


Most JIAM Core Facilities are now using Stratocore to manage scheduling and billing. This system allows any UT faculty, staff, or student to securely log in using their UT NetID credentials; search for and reserve equipment and services; and pay for services once work has been completed. 

Please contact Melanie Murphy to set up a new Stratocore account or with any questions related to Stratocore.
