User Rules and Billing Policies
The Materials Characterization Lab is a University Core Facility. To ensure the smooth operation of the facility and compliance with University regulations, we have established the following set of user rules.
Cancellation of a reservation requires 1 hour’s advance notice. If a cancellation is needed less than 1 hour before the scheduled start time, the user must cancel their reservation by coming in or calling the lab directly. If the reservation is not canceled before it starts, the user will be charged for the full machine time.
If a user needs more time than anticipated, they are responsible to respect the next reservation on the instrument. If a user habitually reserves instrument time that goes unused, the PI may be billed for the unused time.
Failure to comply with these rules may result in loss of individual user privileges. Feel free to contact us with questions.
