EESL, a shared multi-user research facility, is always seeking and encouraging Penn State faculty to propose new instruments. We are always working on developing and maintaining a prioritized list of instruments for energy and environmental scientists that we highlight for purchase and placement in EESL.

We encourage faculty to send suggestions for instrumentation that would significantly enhance energy and environmental research on campus. The process by which EESL evaluates proposed instruments for purchasing in accordance with the draft process highlighted below.  To recommend purchase of a new instrument, please submit your request and include all the details outlined "Decision Process" outlined below to the attention of Odette Mina, EESL Managing Director, odette.mina@psu.edu.

The EESL advisory committee members are always available for consultation about instrument needs. Our goal is to always have a list of prioritized equipment needs in the area of energy and environmental science that EESL can work with to move toward acquisition.
