Electron microscopy enables the study of micro and nano-scale structures of materials along with high resolution imaging and elemental analysis. This facility includes equipment for transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) including electron back-scattering diffraction (EBSD) for elemental analysis, Raman spectroscopy and sample preparation.
Facility is open to TRAINED operators 24 hrs per day , 7 days per week , 365 days per year unless building closed for maintenance.
The lab is available to RPI Faculty, Students, Staff and external users (on individual basis with review by lab mgr and/or chair). All usage of associated sample preparation equipment, on site, is at no charge (excluding expendables).
