Note: The CAES Microscopy and Characterization Suite (MaCS) is exempt to the standard work planning and control process presented below. Due to the repetitive nature of work performed in MaCS (i.e., sample preparation and characterization), overarching project plans and radiation work permits have already been implemented for sample preparation and imaging activities. MaCS services are described on the MaCS web page. The streamlined service request process for MaCS is accomplished using the MaCS Service Request form.
