JEOL 5510 Scanning Electron Microscope 

Purpose of this equipment:
The Jeol Scanning Electron Microscope (JSM 5510) operates at voltages up to 30kV, and has an Oxford Instruments Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy detector attachment for elemental analysis. The scanning electron microscope (SEM) images the sample surface by scanning it with a high-energy beam of electrons in a raster scan pattern. The types of signals generated by an SEM include secondary electrons, back scattered electrons, characteristic x-rays and light. The SEM can produce very high-resolution images of a sample surface, revealing details less than 5 nm in size. SEM micrographs have a very large depth of focus yielding a characteristic three-dimensional appearance useful for understanding the surface structure of a sample.

JEOL 2000 FXII Transmission Electron Microscope 

Purpose of this equipment:
Transmission Electron Microscopy is a microscopy technique whereby a beam of electrons is transmitted through an ultrathin or particulate specimen, interacting with the specimen as it passes through it. An image is formed from the electrons transmitted through the specimen, magnified and focused by an objective lens. The Jeol 2000FXII Transmission Electron Microscope has the capability of running at voltages up to 200kV and produces good resolution digital images. This is a high resolution instrument for TEM imaging, Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM) and electron diffraction.
