This centre for electron microscopy provides modern facilities for advanced materials imaging and characterisation. The facilities include three scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) and three transmission electron microscopes (TEMs), the latest being the state-of-the-art monochromated FEI TITAN 80/300 and FEI Helios NanoLab 600 DualBeam. In addition, the dedicated microscopy team maintain the latest technology in the two sample preparation labs and data processing suite.
