Scanning Electron Microscopy

Zeiss EVO MA10

The Zeiss EVO MA10 is a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) with a LaB6 electron source for micro-to-nano-scale imaging of a wide range of materials; chemical analysis by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy; and mineralogical and structural analysis by electron backscatter diffraction. A second SEM with W-filament electron source provides routine imaging of micro-materials.
