X-ray microanalysis

Juliane Weber

Juliane Weber has a bachelor and master degree from the University of Bonn, Germany and PhD degree from the RWTH University of Aachen, Germany. During her PhD she worked at the Forschungszentrum Juelich GmbH in close collaboration with the Ernst-Ruska Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons (ER-C). She did her postdoc at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory working in close collaboration with the Center for Nanophase Material Sciences (CNMS). She has experience in working with SEM, TEM, atom probe tomography, atomic force microscopy and neutron scattering.

Lehigh University Microscopy School 2019

Now accepting registrations for the 49th annual Lehigh Microscopy School which will be held on the campus of Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, June 2-7, 2019. All courses, lecturers and instrumentation will be together for what promises to be a phenomenal week!

Course offerings include:

Daniel Alberts

Daniel is a Masters student in the Department of Geosciences.

High Resolution Elemental Analysis from 2kV to 200kV Workshop

This workshop will discuss, through seminars and practical sessions, the technological advances that make nanometer and sub-nanometer elemental characterization possible at wide range of energies in the TEM and SEM.

Afternoon practical sessions featuring hands on demonstrations will use the Imaging Cores - Kuiper (Materials Imaging and Characterization Facility):

“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.

Jerry Chang

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), in situ liquid cell/heating experiments, and Focused Ion Beam Sample Preparation.

Equipment moving to the Imaging Cores - Kuiper

The following equipment and personnel are moving from the Imaging Cores - Marley into the newly remodeled Imaging Cores - Kuiper. The move will occur the week of January 23-27, 2017.

Welcome Geosciences!

The Microscopy Alliance is please to welcome two core facilities from the School of Geosciences. The Arizona LaserChron SEM Facility and the SEM Facility are both located in the Gould-Simpson building.
