  • Content Description: The Shared Research Equipment (SHaRE) User Facility and Program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) provides microanalytical facilities for studies within the materials sciences. Available instrumentation includes advanced analytical electron microscopes, atom probe field ion microscopes, and nanoindentation facilities. Through SHaRE, researchers from US universities, industries, and government laboratories may collaborate with Facility scientists to perform research not possible at their home institutions. International collaborations are also possible. Most SHaRE projects seek correlations at the microscopic or atomic scale between structure and properties in a wide range of metallic, ceramic, and other structural materials. Typical research projects include studies of magnetic materials, advanced alloys, catalysts, semiconductor device materials, high Tc superconductors, and surface-modified polymers. Projects usually involve one or more external researchers visiting the SHaRE Facility for up to three weeks during the fiscal year (October 1--September 30). Project approval is based upon the scientific excellence and relevance of proposed collaborative research. Operating time is available without charge to researchers who intend to publish their results in the open literature. Additionally, proprietary research can be accomplished on either a full cost-recovery basis or by Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs). Analytical services (service microscopy) which can be purchased from commercial laboratories are not offered by SHaRE. Detailed information regarding the SHaRE User Facility, available instrumentation, travel support, faculty fellowships, and how users access these is available at
