Electron Microscopes

Electron microscopes are used to investigate crystallographic structure of different materials, including morphology/topology of a wide range of inorganic and organic specimens such as microorganisms, cells, large molecules, and biopsy samples. Industrially, electron microscopes are used for quality control and failure analysis.

Morphological/topological, structural and compositional characterisation of bulk materials and micro-and nanomaterials by electron microscopy is performed using the following equipment:

The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) are equipped with ENERGY-DISPERSIVE X-RAY SPECTROSCOPY (EDS) system, sometimes called Energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX/EDXA) which is an analytical technique used for the elemental analysis or chemical characterization of the samples.
