Equipment Scheduling: 2.1 Initial training: Each user, to be allowed to operate an instrument without supervision, must go through the two following sessions: Initial training: During this session, the imaging center staff will demonstrate the instrument safe operation and principle. Supervised session: For the second use of the instrument, the trained user operates the instrument under the supervision of the imaging center staff to verify that the user understands the operation of the instrument. 2.2 Scheduling procedure: Any use of instrument must be scheduled at least one day in advance. Usage without reservation will not be accepted. User with proper training must send an email to: Dr. Wafa Amir, Director of Imaging, wamir@desu.edu , with the following information: - Instrument to use, date and duration. - Name of person using the instrument - Assisted or non-assisted use - Specification of PI and project to charge the fees from. 2.3 Cancellation and no-shows: Cancellations must be received via email one day prior to appointment start or investigator will be billed as a no-show. No-shows will be billed for full scheduled appointment time. Email any cancelations to Dr. Wafa Amir: wamir@desu.edu. 3. Log book: Each instrument has a logbook. All users need to write their name, PI, hour of operation, and any special event occurring during the instrument use for unsupervised use. 4. Sample and waste policies: Please refer to the “imaging center policies” file.  5. Billing and user fees: 5.1 User categories: Internal user: Any student, researcher or faculty from Delaware State University.   External user: Any non-industrial personnel outside of Delaware State University, affiliated with an academic or government institution, or a non-profit organization.   Industrial user: Anyone affiliated with an industrial organization (excluding non-profit) 5.2 Instrument list and fees: Please refer to the “imaging center policies” file.  6. Acknowledgments / Co-authorship Policy: 6.1 Acknowledgments Investigators are requested to recognize the role of the Optical Science Research Imaging Center in producing data for publication in the acknowledgement section of manuscripts and posters presented to meetings and conferences. This is critical of demonstrating the importance of the imaging center to the research conducted at Delaware State University and with our external collaborators and will help to secure additional equipment and funding. To keep track of publications linked to the imaging center, authors should submit a copy of the manuscript and the poster as a PDF to the director of the imaging center. 6.2 Co-authorship Co-authorship agreements will be made before the commencement of the study and staff member included as an author should have the opportunity to review the manuscript prior to publication.   Co-authorship may be requested in the following instances:   - Significant intellectual contribution to experimental design - Extensive analysis and/or interpretation of data - Preparation of data for the purpose of publication.   Back to the Imaging Center Home Page Back to the CMNST Home page

Artist's rendering of the north-side view of the proposed new Applied Optics Building

Body: 
Delaware State University Applied Optics Building On September 25th, with the Governor and other state officials on hand, DSU's president, Board of Trustees, and administrators hosted the long-anticipated dedication of the OSCAR Building.   In 2012, Governor Jack Markell officiated over a groundbreaking ceremony at Delaware State University, that paved the way for beginning construction of Delaware State University's newest building slated to come to the campus: the OSCAR (Optical Science Center for Applied Research) Building. Read article here. Construction began in Winter 2013 for the first of two (2) connected buildings. Now this state-of-the-art facility serves as the new site of OSCAR - housing laboratories, offices, meeting space, and space dedicated to serve as hubs of innovation for collaboration with industry. Read more about the Optics Building opening here. Multiple views of external building design: Learn how to give to the building fund. (Designate the "Optics bldg fund" in your memo line.)

Body: 
The College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences & Technology is home to the Optical Science Research Imaging Center. This facility, located in Rm 237 of the Luna I. Mishoe Science Center, was initially founded with funding from the National Science Foundation in 2005 and has developed multiple capabilities to accommodate qualitative and quantitative spectroscopy and Imaging research. The goals of the Optical Science Research Imaging Center are to create an integrated research and education environment for researchers and students; to support and motivate cross-disciplinary research among scientists from different DSU and non-DSU STEM departments; and to provide access to companies and external users to state-of-the-art instruments and expertise for imaging and analysis of complex samples. A modest-sized operation, The Optical Science Research Imaging Center offers a quick turn-around time and a reasonably discounted rate. For specific imaging requirements or questions about our capabilities, contact us. Back to the College Home Page
