The CCEM has a new file server

While the CCEM has been physically closed, the staff is still working hard at home to improve your user experience.

Our new file server is now ready for use and can be accessed at

To login, use the email associated with your NanoLIMS account (not the username) and your NanoLIMS password. If you cannot login, log into NanoLIMS first, then an account will be generated automatically. Any changes made to your password in NanoLIMS will also be made to the file server.

The old file server is now read-only. Please don’t write to it or use the CCEM owncloud service anymore.

Desktop clients for the new server can be accessed here: There are two clients, “desktop drive client” is recommended, but you can try the “desktop syncing client” as well.

The file server will be set-up on the microscope computers, so you can directly save your data to your account.

Welcome New Employee – Natalie Hamada

Natalie will be joining the CCEM staff as a research associate. She is responsible for the Titan TEMs.

A note from Natalie: I obtained a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Purdue University where I characterized the material properties and morphology of iron-strengthened protein adhesives produced by marine mussels. My research interests include analytical electron microscopy and soft materials, in particular organic-inorganic interfaces.  In my free time I enjoy gardening and spending time outdoors with my two dogs.

Welcome New Employee – Jhoynner Martinez

Jhoynner will be joining the CCEM staff as a lab technician. He is responsible for sample preparation and SEM.

A note from Jhoynner: I am a very focused and knowledge driven individual with the desire to help and teach but also to learn. I attended Cathedral High School and am a Mohawk College Graduate with an Advanced Diploma in Mechanical Eng. Technology. This year I am working on becoming a Certified Technologist. I started here at the CCEM as a co-op student and learned that electron microscopy was something that I enjoy and would love to expand my knowledge on. I previously worked as a steel worker at a company called Salit Steel that focuses mainly on re-bar. I am also a manager and co-owner of a cleaning business.
