Access and booking

The instruments at the Chalmers Materials Analysis Laboratory are available to academia and industry. If you have an interest in using the instruments please contact the lab staff: Depending on your needs there are different user “modes”. The most common is that you learn to use the instruments yourself, or we can designate an operator for you that will run the instrument.

The costs at the Laboratory are covered by instrument fees, which are based on several factors such as depreciation, rent, consumables and service costs. The prices for academic users are kept low, due to direct support from funding agencies, private research foundations and from Chalmers. For use of instrument with operator, an extra fee for the operator will be added: 700 SEK/hour for academia and 1500 SEK/hour for companies. The fee for each instrument can be found in the table below.
