Publications From 2015

Here are some EM-containing publications from people using the EMC in 2015. All the publications listed here have at least some electron microscopy done using instruments at IUB. Clicking on the title of an article will take you to the website of the publisher where you should be able to obtain a PDF copy of the journal article. If you are unable to obtain a copy that way, please contact the highlighted author(s) for further information. Finally, publications that do not have an IUB-associated name highlighted contain electron microscopy work done by off-campus users of EMC equipment.
