At present there are two open access centers at the Center for Physical Sciences and Technology
  1. Open access center of electronic microscopy, X-ray diffractometry and spectrometry.

At these centers open access is ensured in:
  • rendering scientific research and technology development services;
  • implementing joint business and science projects;
  • employing equipment for training highly qualified specialists;
  • making it possible for users having an appropriate qualification and technical background to carry out scientific investigations and/or experiments at laboratories by themselves
