Faces Scheduling System
We utilise the 'Faces Scheduling System' to manage the usage of all our instruments. This web-based serice allows users to book instruments on a first-come, first-served basis. All users are given a unique log-in providing them with access to instruments on which they have been trained. The account is PHYS_MICRO.
Session blocks are divided into three categories:
NO Data Sticks
The computers attached to the TEMs, SEMs, AFMs, the FIB, and the Optical Microscopes have been setup to upload to one of 4 servers which should appear in 'My Computer' as a network folder. The USB ports have also been disabled to limit the proliferation of viruses etc between different machines and the servers.
To retrieve data from the microscope you first need to upload it to the network from the microscope computer. You can then retrieve your data from your PC or laptop following the simple process explained here.
External users can be sent a link to download any images they require.
