Pinaki is out with an illness likely the remainder of this week. He will be rescheduling appointments.
Staff in Electron Optics
Liz Miller will be out of town for 6 weeks beginning next week. Aleister and I will try to pick up the work she was doing during her absence. One area that he and I cannot assume is EBSD. We have asked someone to help us with that but the response will be slowed. So, plan your EBSD work ahead of time – don’t wait until the last minute or your work will be delayed.
Liz will return to work on April 6th.
ACMAL hours/staffing over the 2 weeks of holidays looks like this:
The university will be closed on Dec 24, 25 and Dec 31, Jan 1. The building will be locked on those days. The ACMAL labs will be open on the other days, but more like 9 – 10am and closed at 5pm.
Unrestricted users will have unlimited access to the building and labs. Restricted users have access during the other days. We ask that newly trained users make appointments during the period so someone is near in case there are troubles.
Ed Laitila and Owen Mills will be out the entire 2 week period. Pinaki Mukherjee will be in during all but the 4 holidays. Liz Miller and Aleister Kerr will be available by appointment. Tim Leftwich will be here part of the 2 weeks – its best to make appointment with him.
If there are problems contact us. Our contact information is:
The M&M building and ACMAL labs will be closed in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday and Friday next week, November 28 and 29, 2019. The building and ACMAL labs will be open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for restricted users (with no keys or tap access). If you are a new user please email us to arrange for supervision in case you have a problem. Unrestricted users who have building and lab tap access are free to use the equipment anytime
Aleister and Liz will be working limited hours next week. Pinaki Mukherjee will be here each day, but Ed Laitila and I will be on stay-cation all week. Since we will be in town, if you have an emergency and cannot reach Aleister and Liz, please call Owen at 906-369-1875 and Ed at 906-369-2041.
Have a safe and happy holiday!
I’ll be out of town tomorrow through Friday. Back in the office Monday, Oct14th. You’ll be able to reach me by phone, text or email.
Liz and Aleister will be here to coat samples or help with SEMs & AFM.
This is just a reminder that the ACMAL facilities will be CLOSED Thursday, July 4, 2019. This is a University Closed Holiday so the building will also be locked.
Only those with swipe access will be able to use the instruments.
Please plan your instrument use accordingly.
I have a back injury that’s keeping me out of the office for a few days. Danielle and Liz will be in Friday.
I should be back to work next week.
I’m going to take vacation on Fridays again the summer beginning May 10. Danielle and Liz will be here part of that day and I’ll normally be in town so I could come back to work in case of emergency.
There will be ACMAL staff in the labs through the 3 work days – Monday – Wednesday. Thursday and Friday are University holidays and the building will be locked. Only unrestricted users will be able to enter the building and labs. Close the lab doors when you leave the room.
We strongly discourage new users working without assistance nearby.
