Metallography facilities are part of the DMSE Laboratory for Physical Metallurgy. A list of equipment and their rates is shown below. Please contact Dr. Shaymus Hudson for training and access. 

There is a 50% additional charge for assisted use and for training. An additional 60.5% overhead is charged for personal or non-MIT use. Outside use can be paid via checks payable to MIT, and invoices for outside charges can be issued once a month through the DMSE Finanical Office.
