Seminar introducting ASU's CryoEM facility to the UA research community

Dewight Williams PhD, from ASU's CryoEM facility, will be speaking on the topic of An Arizona regional consortium for cryogenic TEM determination of cellular and macro-molecular structures. The presentation is part of the Biological Chemistry Program's seminar series.

The seminar will be held in Speech and Hearing Sciences 205 on Thursday, September 7, 2017 from 12:30-1:30pm.

More information about hands-on sample preparations workshops will be forth-coming.

“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.

Yao-Jen Chang has a MS degree from Murray State University and PhD degree from University of Kentucky. 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.

Imaging Cores - Kuiper

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.
