Acknowledgements

IMSERC relies heavily on competitive grants from the NSF and NIH to fund the purchase of new instruments. Please help ensure that IMSERC will continue to provide modern instrumentation by acknowledging the funding agencies when instrumentation is used. Also, please include the keyword IMSERC and X-RAY, MS and NMR as appropriate to enable the search of papers by IMSERC use. The ability to tie IMSERC usage to publications is critical when applying for both intramural and extramural funding.

Publications and presentations supported by NSF and NIH must acknowledge your grant support.  The suggested wording is given in the Grant Proposal Guide:

This work made use of the IMSERC at Northwestern University, which has received support from the Soft and Hybrid Nanotechnology Experimental (SHyNE) Resource (NSF ECCS-1542205); the State of Illinois and International Institute for Nanotechnology (IIN).

If your work used the HCN600 please use this acknowledgement:

This work made use of the IMSERC at Northwestern University, which has received support from the NIH (1S10OD012016-01 / 1S10RR019071-01A1); Soft and Hybrid Nanotechnology Experimental (SHyNE) Resource (NSF ECCS-1542205); the State of Illinois and International Institute for Nanotechnology (IIN).

If your work used the Au400, please use this this acknowledgement:

This work made use of the IMSERC at Northwestern University, which has received support from the NSF (CHE-1048773); Soft and Hybrid Nanotechnology Experimental (SHyNE) Resource (NSF ECCS-1542205); the State of Illinois and International Institute for Nanotechnology (IIN).
