Western Kentucky University Nondestructive Analysis (NOVA) Center
The acquisition of the Large Chamber Scanning Electron Microscope (LC-SEM) has positioned WKU as the only university in North America with an instrument of this type. As envisioned, the NOVA Center will be a national focal point for nondestructive measurements and is crosscutting in the five priority research areas of the Commonwealth's New Economy Strategy. In particular, Materials and Advanced Manufacturing will be significantly impacted as a result of the Centers founding.
