Coordinated Center for UEC Research Facilities contributes not only to the advancement of education and research at UEC but also to the activities in collaboration with external institutions. The important activities are as follows:
(1) The encouragement of the widespread and efficient use of the equipments for the education and research at UEC.
(2) The management of the analytical and measurement equipments in the center.
(3) The research on the development of analytical and measurement technology.
(4) The encouragement of collaborative researches and fund entrusted researches.
(5) The acceptance of charged measurement requisition from external institutions.

The center consists of the Laboratory for Surface and Interface Structure Analysis, Laboratory for Chemical Structure Analysis, Laboratory for Materials Function Characterization, and Cryogenics Center.

Laboratory for Surface and Interface Structure Analysis Purpose
