SMIF Director

The Shared Materials Instrumentation Facility (SMIF) at Duke University operates as an interdisciplinary shared use facility. It was established in 2002 as part of the University’s Materials Initiative with funding from the Provost’s office.

SMIF is available to Duke University researchers and educators from the various schools and departments as well as to “external” users from other Universities, government laboratories or industry. Hourly-based user fees are charged as a means of recovering the direct costs associated with operating the facility.
