The STEM is back online. The chiller repairs are completed and the technician from FEI has finished his maintenance.
Facilities have completed the updates on the rooftop chiller. They add capacity to the system by switching to potable water to cool the condenser side of the chillers. This will temporarily resolve the problem and get us back online until a more robust solution can be implemented. The technician from Thermo Fisher will be here this week to complete the repairs. If all goes well the TEM will be back online next week.
Stay tuned for more information.
The STEM is offline until further notice. Due to continued issues with the rooftop chiller the repairs were not able to be completed. We are working with MTU facilities to find a long-term solution to the chiller problem.
Just a quick update. The chillers have been repaired. We are working with FEI to get the STEM up and running. We will have a technician on-site next week. If all goes well the STEM will be available for use the week of July 19th.
The STEM is down due to issues with the chillers. I’m working with MTU facilities and Thermo Fisher on this problem. However, until we can resolve this issue, the STEM will not be available for use.
Thank you for your patience,
The repairs to the chiller are completed and the STEM is available for use.
Due to issues with the chillers the STEM is offline. I’m working with facilities as well as Northern Heating and Plumbing to resolve this as soon as possible.
Michigan Tech and the Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) department seek a postdoctoral scientist to serve as a specialist in the operation and application of an FEI Titan Themis Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope (STEM) and its associated attachments for interdisciplinary users across campus as well as potential users external to campus.
The STEM is back online. The FEI technician was able to come in yesterday and today to complete the alignments.
Dr. Anjana will be contacting anyone who had previously scheduled sessions.
The STEM is currently offline due to an alignment issue. We are working with the service technician from FEI to repair the issue. They will likely need to come for an onsite service visit, which will hopefully be next week.
Once the repairs are complete, Anjana will be contacting anyone who had previously scheduled sessions.
