Our objective is to provide the multi-user laboratory ofthe UNICAMP Institute of Physics Gleb Wataghin (IFGW) with equipments for general use that can be employed in the majority of the lines of research at the Institute. We requestthe following equipments: 1) a helium leak detector, which is useful to those who work with vacuum equipments (cryostats, analytical equipments, and those for deposition etc.); 2) an X-ray diffractometer, of great usefulness because of the various types of analysis it provides, some of which are fundamental to condensed matter physics; 3) an atomic force microscope, which has become increasingly more indispensable, especially in the analysis of surfaces and nanostructures deposited on surfaces; 4) a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer, which has a wide variety of analytic capabilities (thin films, multilayered films, microanalysis in attenuated total reflectance mode, quantification of contaminants etc.); and 5) a laser writer, which is quite useful to researchers whose projects involve photolithography because it imprints the pattern directly onto the sample, providing great flexibility to those who often need to change the pattern. We emphasize thefact that all of these equipments will be made accessible to all IFGW researchers, in accordance with the multi-user laboratory guidelines approved by the IFGW Council. (AU)
