You may only use equipment in the Surface, Interface & Thin Film Group if you have been properly trained. This training normally includes background reading (so you know the principles behind different instruments and techniques), satisfactory risk assessment, AND hands-on training with me and/or an experienced operator. You may also have to do Departmental training to underpin certain tasks, e.g. liquid nitrogen handling for Hall measurements.
Full training on very complex machines such as MADGEneto may take several months but you may be signed off to perform a subset of tasks.
As always: if in doubt, ASK.
