Equipment and Methods
The equipment and methods available within the DCN can be used either by requesting a service investigation conducted by a DCN expert, or – after registration and a device-specific training – by booking the requested tool through DCN’s online booking system and running the experiment her- or himself.
The rules according to which the equipment and methods available at the DCN can be accessed by registered users depend on both their relation to and the level of collaboration with the DCN and the TU Dresden, respectively:
- Members of the TU Dresden or another public research institution, who are partner to the DCN within a scientific collaboration, may use the equipment free of charge.
- Members of the TU Dresden or another public research institution, who request support for a project, which is not a scientific collaboration with the DCN, are charged the project-related expenses. Since the DCN is listed as a device center in the RIsources database of the German Science Foundation (DFG), (limited) coverage of these expenses can be applied for within DFG projects.
- Any other interested person (e.g., from a company) may as well book the equipment of the DCN and will be accordingly charged.
