Microscopy Facility


The microscopy center is a shared central facility whose primary goal is to promote scientific research by providing training in basic operation of the scanning electron microscope (SEM), the transmission electron microscope (TEM) and the Confocal.

New users of the facility are asked to submit an application then schedule an appointment with the manager to discuss the project or to begin training.




    • JEOL JEM 2100 TEM ( Transmission electron microscope )

      This instrument will be installed during the Fall of 2012.

    • Nikon eclipse Ti ( Instrument )

    • Zeiss EM902 ( Instrument )

      The Zeiss EM 902 is a thermionic (tungsten) transmission electron microscope (TEM) with a line resolution of 0.34 nm and a point resolution of 0.5 nm. It operates in normal, diffraction, and low dose modes at 50 or 80 kV. Its magnification range is 150x to 400,000x. Images may be acquired on film or digitally at 1.4 megapixels.

    • Zeiss LSM 510 ( Instrument )

      Laser Scanning Microscope (LSM) 510

    • Zeiss LSM 710 ( Instrument )

      Laser Scanning Microscope (LSM) 710

      This instrument will be installed during the Fall of 2012.

    • Zeiss Supra 55 VP ( Instrument )

      Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)

      The Zeiss Supra 55 VP is a field emission SEM with a maximum resolution of 1 nm. It has the following capabilities: secondary and backscattered electron imaging in high vacuum or in variable pressure mode, low voltage scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM), electron beam lithography, energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry (EDS) and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD).
