Implementation of User Fees beginning 2011

Over the past few years, rising expenses have outstripped available funding, and in 2011 the IRM joins all other national multi-user facilities who already ask visitors to pay instrument usage fees. However, U.S. Student Fellows will be exempt from user fees, and Visiting Research Fellows will receive a $4000 grant to be used towards instrument use and travel expenses. Based on past instrument usage, $4000 is sufficient to cover all instrument use by the average Visiting Fellow over a 10-day visit. See the Equipment page for more information on instrument specs.
