SEM (scanning electron microscope)

Scanning Electron Microscopy

The scanning electron microscope (SEM) laboratory consists of a Tescan SEM with semi-quantitative EDS capabilities, and an Cressington automated sputter coater. The X-ray analysis system was recently upgraded to a silicon drift detector with a 4pi analyzer and software, using funds from Dr. John J.W Rogers and the University.
