Transmission electron microscopy (TEM)

“Lab in the gap” - the UA’s new Electron Microscope is ready for solving big scientific problems

An electron microscope uses electrons to probe an object, measuring the physical, chemical and microstructural information down to atomic-level resolution. Recently, there are transformative advancements in electron microscopy: 1) stable, easy-to-use automated aberration correction enables 80pm-resolution instrument for solving real-world problems; and 2) a surge of new development of in situ and environmental techniques.

He is specialized in exploring the structure-property relationships for nanomaterials using electron microscopy techniques, including energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS), selected area electron diffraction (SAED), and in situ liquid cell/heating experiments.

ASU Cryo EM Workshop (Jan 2017)

The Cryo EM workshop will be happening at ASU in January 2017. The new FEI Titan Krios has been delivered and will hopefully be up and running at the end of this year. This will be a fantastic opportunity to have your students (or yourselves) trained in the basics of cryo EM.

UA to add several new high-end Microscopes

Senior Vice President for Research Kimberly Espy has approved funding to move forward with the purchase of three high-end optical microscopes from Carl Zeiss Microscopy, LLC. Zeiss had the winning proposal in a competitive RFP that was conducted this summer.

The instruments include an inverted confocal microscope and an upright multi-photon/confocal microscope to be placed in a new ORD Imaging Core Facility within the Marley building (main campus).

CSU workshop on Electron Diffraction methods for Materials Analysis - 2015

We are happy to announce the second edition of the CIF Summer School, which this year will feature a 3-day workshop on electron diffraction methods for materials analysis (May 19-21, 2015). Registration will open mid-January to both CSU and non-CSU students and researchers.
