The Imaging and Analysis Center (IAC) in the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) was established in 1993 to promote multidisciplinary collaborations in research and education and to strengthen efforts in materials science and engineering by providing critically needed central facility. The IAC is a major imaging and analytic instrumentation center, which is supported by both PRISM and the Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM).  Since its inception the IAC has occupied a pivotal role in materials research and education at Princeton . With continued funding support from National Science Foundation, National Institute of Health , U.S. Air Force, Office of Naval Research, Department of Defense, Department of Energy, the state of New Jersey , ExxonMobil, Johnson & Johnson and the University, the IAC has become one of the most advanced imaging and analysis facilities in the world.
