Selected Publications From 2007 through 2009

Here are some publications (from betweem 2007 and 2009) containing work by people actively using the facilities on the IUB compus. However, some of these publications do have electron microscopy not performed using on-campus instruments. 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.
