Electron Microscopy Laboratory

Lab Manager
Description

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.

Hours of Operation

Facility is open to TRAINED operators  24 hrs per day , 7 days per week , 365 days  per year unless building  closed for maintenance.

Access

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).
