Instrument Fees

Approved rates for use of the Michigan Ion Beam Laboratory

WOLVERINE (3.0 MV Tandem Accelerator) – Irradiations and surface analysis:
UM (internal – short code): $49/h, for each irradiation hour or per spectrum collected or spectrum analyzed plus a setup charge of $49/h (each ion beam and experiment) with 1/2 day (4h) minimum or actual hours if more than 4h;
Other Universities: $98/h for each irradiation hour or per spectrum collected or spectrum analyzed plus a setup charge of $98/hour (each ion beam and experiment) with 1/2 day (4h) minimum or actual hours if more than 4h;
Businesses: $196/h for each irradiation hour or per spectrum collected or spectrum analyzed plus a setup charge of $196/hour (each ion beam and experiment) 1/2 day (4h) minimum or actual hours if more than 4h;

MAIZE (1.7 MV Tandem Accelerator) – Irradiations and surface analysis:
UM (internal – short code): $49/h, for each irradiation hour or per spectrum collected or spectrum analyzed plus a setup charge of $49/h (each ion beam and experiment) with 1/2 day (4h) minimum or actual hours if more than 4h;
Other Universities: $98/h for each irradiation hour or per spectrum collected or spectrum analyzed plus a setup charge of $98/hour (each ion beam and experiment) with 1/2 day (4h) minimum or actual hours if more than 4h;
Businesses: $196/h for each irradiation hour or per spectrum collected or spectrum analyzed plus a setup charge of $196/hour (each ion beam and experiment) 1/2 day (4h) minimum or actual hours if more than 4h;

BLUE (.400 MV Ion Implanter)
UM (internal – short code): $49/h (for irradiation) and a setup charge of $49/h (each ion beam and experiment) for 1/2 day (4h) minimum or actual hours if more than 4h;
Other Universities: $98/h (for irradiation) and a setup charge of $98/hour (each ion beam and experiment) 1/2 day (4h) minimum or actual hours if more than 4h;
Businesses: $196/h (for irradiation) and a setup charge of $196/hour (each ion beam and experiment) 1/2 day (4h) minimum or actual hours if more than 4h;

NOTE: If MIBL performs the supervision of the experiment, an additional $25/h will be added to cover experiment monitoring 24/7. For work other than accelerator/beam setup and experiment monitoring that needs MIBL staff’s assistance, the charge rate is $49/h.
