How to Acknowledge NMCF
The NMCF is a self-funded, not-for-profit entity within the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Virginia. Acquisition of new analytical instrumentation relies heavily on enhancing our user base by word-of-mouth, conference, and publication advertising. Therefore, it is important to include a brief acknowledgement of our facility in any publication or presentation.
Please send Cathy Dukes notification of each publication to add to the NMCF database (free advertising for your research!).
Suggested wording for Acknowledgements:
Utilization of the XXXX instrument within UVa's Nanoscale Materials Characterization Facility (NMCF) was fundamental to this work, and I acknowledge the assistance of XXXX for equipment training and analysis of the data.
If the XPS was used, please acknowledge the NSF Award through 2020:
Utilization of the PHI Versaprobe III XPS within UVa's Nanoscale Materials Characterization Facility (NMCF) was fundamental to this project; we acknowledge NSF MRI award #1626201 for the acquisition of this instrument.
