This proposal is aimed at modernizing and expanding a multi-user centralized laboratory (facility) that has been in operation for more than 20 years at the USP São Carlos Institute of Physics (IFSC), doing research and providing services in the area of inorganic and organic materials with techniques of scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy and X-ray diffraction, meeting the needs of researchers in the state of São Paulo and in other Brazilian states. The modernization and the expansion will bring together modern techniques of confocal microscopy and dual-wavelength X-ray diffraction, as well as highresolution electron microscopy, field-emission gun scanning electron microscopy, and state-of-the-art atomic force microscopy. With this expansion of the laboratory, it will be possible to broaden the gamut of materials investigated and to serve a greater number of researchers, with personnel highly qualified. In addition, the growing multidisciplinary emphasis at the IFSC has brought new demands for methodologies that make it possible to investigate organic and inorganic nanostructures, soft matter, biomass, and biosystems in general (confocal microscopy). The project is supported by two FAPESP Centers for Research, Innovation and Dissemination grants, three National Institute of Science and Technology grants, three FAPESP Thematic Project grants, one FAPESP Regular Project grant, and one Financing Agency for Studies and Projects grant, together with other associated project grants, totaling over 75 million Brazilian reals in financial resources, as well as various complementary grants. Through these projects, we seek to understand physical, physicochemical, and biological processes on the atomic and nanometric scales, in cutting-edge areas to which the groups participating in this proposal have made significant contributions at the international level. Because of the broad (statewide and nationwide) scope of some of the associated projects, considerable number of researchers and specialists in technological innovation in the state of São Paulo will benefit, principally in terms of the infrastructure and the training of technicians at the IFSC to facilitate the sharing of the multi-user equipment.
