The group has three SEMs, excellent for imaging, EDX or WDX, and our latest addition incorporates a FIB for sample preparation. The FEI SCIOS allows us to do FIB sample cutting and thinning for high-precision sample preparation. The Zeiss DSM 982 Gemini is high resolution SEM. The EPMA Cameca SX 100 is used for WDX and has special anti-contamination equipment installed.
